Konstantinos Mavropanos: Arsenal sign Greek centre-back from PAS Giannina

Mavropanos has been identified by the club's new scouting team led by Sven Mislintat

Strong reports on Wednesday have suggested that the Gunners are close to confirming a £1.9m deal for Greek defender Konstantinos Mavropanos from PAS Giannina, with the 20-year-old due in London to agree terms.

What do we know about him?

.

It took until April 2017 for Mavropanos to make his league debut as he became an integral part of Giannina's defence in the 2017/18 season before his arrival in North London.

The Greece Under-21 global is viewed as one for the future by Wenger and co and is set to be loaned out to German side Werder Bremen for the rest of the season.

Werder Bremen have been widely reported to be his next destination, with the club in desperate need of reinforcements sat third from bottom in the German top flight.


Ahead of tonight's Premier League clash at home to Chelsea, he said: "We are out there and look of course to do some things".

Clearly the new head of recruitment Sven Mislintat has seen something special in the youngster.

Mislintat signed the likes of Mats Hummels, Christian Pulisic, Robert Lewandowski, Shinji Kagawa, Ousmane Dembele and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang during his time at Dortmund, so trust in him Arsenal fans.

Gunners fans will therefore be hoping that despite Mavropanos' reputation in the game he will turn out be an exciting capture for the club over the next few years.
