Werder Bremen defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos is followed by a number of top European clubs, according to Bild.
The Greece international has been playing at a very high level ever since he joined the Bundesliga side from Genoa, and it appears the time has come for him to leave Germany.
With Werder suffering a major downtrend in fortunes over the last couple of years, the Weserstadion outfit might not be able to prevent their star players from leaving.
Bayer Leverkusen have reportedly submitted an €8.5 million offer for the talented footballer, but top Serie A clubs are also keen.
Juventus, Fiorentina and Napoli are also expected to make official proposals in the summer transfer window, and the player could be interested in a return to Italian Serie A having played for Genoa and Milan.
Sokratis Papastathopoulos, 24, has a contract until June 2016 at Weserstadion, meaning he won’t be coming on the cheap.
