Stephan Lichtsteiner has hinted he is in talks with Arsenal but was not sure whether a deal will be done before the World Cup starts.

The Switzerland international’s contract at Juventus expires this summer and has been heavily linked with a free transfer to Arsenal.

The 34-year-old full-back said: “I cannot say anything about that [moving to Arsenal].

“Nothing is finalised. Will it be done before the World Cup? I don’t know.”

Meanwhile, Arsenal are reportedly interested in signing Borussia Dortmund centre-back.

Sokratis is another potential new arrival with Arsenal reportedly close to confirming a deal with the defender.

Lichtsteiner made 32 appearances for Juventus last season, helping them win the domestic treble.

Sokratis scored three goals in 43 games for Borussia Dortmund, who finished fourth in the Bundesliga.
