It remains to be seen what the midfielder chooses to do, with a number of options available, including staying at Arsenal to play under new boss Unai Emery.

The Greece global who will not be heading to Russian Federation is poised to fill in at centre-half under Emery during the new Premier League campaign.

The dominating 30-year-old centre-back moved to the German giants from fellow Bundesliga club Werder Bremen in 2013, and has gone on to run up just shy of 200 appearances at the Westfalenstadion.
