Arsenal defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos suffered an ankle injury during Greece’s 2-0 defeat to Finland, according to Gazzetta.gr.
The 30-year-old was replaced at half-time during the UEFA Nations League clash on Monday evening.
The Gunners host Leicester City on Monday in the Premier League and could be without the former Borussia Dortmund player.
Sokratis injured vs Finland
Following Sokratis’ withdrawal, Greece fell apart, conceding two second-half goals.
The defeat leaves them six points off leaders Finland with two UEFA Nations League fixtures remaining.
Now, Arsenal will be awaiting further news on the defender after his withdrawal at half-time with an injury.
He due for a full assessment at the club’s Colony training base in the coming days.
Unai Emery’s shortage of defenders
With Sokratis potentially being sidelined, Unai Emery has been left with just Rob Holding and Shkodran Mustafi as his central defenders.
The Gunners have been unlucky with injuries with both Konstantinos Mavropanos and Laurent Koscielny and Sokratis currently sidelined.
Arsenal supporters unhappy with international break
Sokratis coming off injured is the reason I hate the international break!

Heard Sokratis was taken off at half-time in his game for Greece tonight with an injury.
Hope it’s nothing serious, we need him.
This is why international games on a non Euro/World Cup year are so pointless.
Club football is much better & more important than friendlies.#AFC
