Frosinone Eye Ex-Milan Stopper to Shore Defense

Frosinone’s return to Serie A after four years will be marked by a squad overhaul, as the Canarini prepare to shore up their defense following three attacking acquisitions in Giorgi Kvernadze, Gennaro Borrelli and Marvin Cuni.

As revealed by Sky Italia (via MilanNews), ex-Milan and Genoa center-back Sokratis Papastathopoulos is the premier target for new coach Eusebio di Francesco, who recently replaced Italy icon Fabio Grosso, to strengthen the backline.

Having signed a two-year contract with Olympiacos following a three-year stint at Arsenal, he was released by the Greek giants earlier in the week. And now is in line to arrive at Frosinone, with negotiations reportedly in the final phase.

As a Bosman transfer, Papastathopoulos could be a worthwhile investment, given his low wages coupled with veteran-level experience. He could return to Italy after 12 years.

The Greek defender, who previously starred for the likes of top guns Arsenal and Dortmund, is no stranger to the Italian top-flight, having won the Scudetto in 2010/11 with the Rossoneri.
