Reports: Gunners in for young Greek centre-half


Reports this morning link Arsenal with a move for Greek central defender Konstantinos Mavropanos.

The 20 year old is, apparently, expected to command a fee of around £2m, but won’t immediately join the club. Instead, he’ll spend the second half of the season on loan with Werder Bremen.

The 20 year old currently plays for PAS Giannina who sit 10th in the Greek Superleague at this moment in time.

6’2 Mavropanos has made 14 league appearances so far, scoring three goals and picking up six yellow cards in those games.

Yesterday, Arsene Wenger spoke about his January transfer plans, and with the age profile of our central defenders making youthful recruitment a priority, this kind of deal would not be a surprise at all.

We’re going a solid enough 3 on the Poo-o-Meter.
