Well I have seen this Arsenal transfer rumour quite a lot lately but I thought it was just another made-up media story concerning a player I had never heard of…
But now according to Sky Sports it seems that a deal is almost concluded to sign the Greek centre-back Konstantinos Mavropanos from PAS Giannina, but it would appear that he is not going to be coming straight to the Emirates.
The Sky report states: Arsenal are in advanced talks to sign 20-year old centre-back Konstantinos Mavropanos from PAS Giannina.
It is understood Arsenal want to tie-up a permanent deal for the promising Greek defender before sending him out on loan to German side Werder Bremen.
According to the Arsenal correspondent from Goal, Chris Wheatley, he laso has some information. He tweeted this 45 minutes ago…
Told that Arsenal hold interest in young defender Konstantinos Mavropanos but transfer is not as advanced as reports suggest.
His parent club PAS Giannina say the player will leave if there is an offer on the table but nothing to announce as it stands. Olympiakos also want him. pic.twitter.com/yRpnUgMpR9
