Although Arsenal struggled to shed several team members in the summer, it seems the January window could be kinder to them.
Only they will know if it is other increasingly desperate clubs or some players reducing their salary demands in pursuit of regular football, but Sead Kolasinac and William Saliba have already completed moves this month.
Greek defender Sokratis has also been at the center of rumors about an outing in January, and it seems that a reunion with Genoa is a real possibility:

It’s worth noting that nothing has been agreed yet and the report also hints that Mustafi has been probed as an alternative, but they confirm that Sokratis has given his approval to return to the Serie A club.
He moved to Genoa in 2008 and finally did enough to make a big move to AC Milan, but Di Marzio notes that he maintained good relations with his former club and frequently posts messages of support on his social media.
It could come down to salaries as you have to think that Arsenal are paying him a lot more than Genoa can afford, but he is 32 and should be looking to play regularly so hopefully he can return to a club that clearly means a lot for him.
