Arsenal defender talks up future Premier League move

Arsenal defender Konstantinos Mavropanos admits that he ‘would like’ to play in the Premier League again in the future amidst links with West Ham and Newcastle.

The centre-back hasn’t featured for the Gunners since 2019, and has been enjoying a fine run of form on loan with VFB Stuttgart this term, with the Bundesliga side expected to try to make the deal permanent in the coming months.

His current side are currently threatened by the chance of relegation to Germany’s second tier however, and you wouldn’t expect him to be willing to stay with the club should they not avoid the drop.

Mavropanos was linked with both West Ham and Newcastle in January however, and the player has responded to the supposed interest by admitting that he would like to return to England to play ball.

“Stuttgart is one of the biggest clubs in Germany,” the Greek told BILD.

“At the moment, I’m only concentrating on VfB and making sure we stay in the league.

“I would like to play in the Premier League again at some point. But at the moment, I feel very comfortable at VfB.”

You would hope that if he wasn’t going to join Stuttgart, that he could potentially have another chance for us next term, given his impressive form in Germany this term. I’d happily part ways with Rob Holding if it meant that we could find room for both Saliba and Mavropanos to get their chance to stake a claim.

Both have shown immense ability this season, and could well bring strong competition for the CB role, although you wouldn’t expect us to keep five options for the central role going into the new season, although should we qualify for Europe, we could consider adding depth.

Do you think Mavropanos should have been given more opportunities at the Emirates?

  1. He should 100% be brought back but I think the moronic clause put in his contract means he will go to Stuttgart for £3 millions..

      1. Thought so too but apparently the ball is on Stuttgarts court..

        So if they stay up, they HAVE to buy him.

        If they go down, STUTTGART has the the option to buy him.

        In both cases Arsenal doesnt have any say in the matter as,the fee has,been agreed already..

  2. If Mavro doesnt come, surely Saliba has to come in at any cost. We just cant afford to lose Saliba, the guy is playing really well at this point in time and hopefully Arteta has noticed it when he said Saliba is still in Arsenal’s plans.

  3. What a screw up. A good player binned by Edu/Arteta. Could have been a prize asset but now will go for pennies…..’The Usual Suspects’ of course. What with Saliba and Guendouzi playing out of their skins, we just cannot learn how to nuture these players to INCREASE their value. Our players all slump in value.

  4. I would love to have Mavro and Saliba back. Keep Holding & Gabriel to make 4 centre-backs.
    Push Ben White to midfield. Then we do not need to buy new midfielders. We just need to get a striker replacement.
