Plettenberg reports that former Werder Bremen and Borussia Dortmund center back is under consideration.

The 25-year-old 90-times-capped Greek international has been without a club since his contract with Olympiacos Piraeus lapsed over the summer. Plettenberg claims that Sokratis - as he is colloquially known - is keen to join the German record champions as has rejected concrete interest from Real Betis Balompié in order to potentially sign with the FCB.
