Image: Arsenal loanee named in Europe’s Team of the Month for October

Arsenal loanee Dinos Mavropanos has been named in the October Team of the Month for Europe’s top five leagues.

The defender is into his second season-long loan with Stuttgart at present, with the Bundesliga side expected to complete his signing before next term, with an obligation to buy expected to be triggered.

Dino has been earning plenty of plaudits for his displays so far this season, scoring a number of goals on top of his impressive defensive work, but just how well he has been playing has now been highlighted by WhoScored.com, with his average rating of 7.98 ranking as the best for any CB in any of Europe’s top five leagues.

Arsenal may well live to regret not giving the Greek international a fair chance, although with the likes of Ben White, Gabriel Magalhaes, William Saliba and Dan Ballard all in contention to battle it out for the CB roles in the coming years, we should still be in safe hands even without Mavropanos.

    Its not that were selling him but we are selling him for practically NOTHING.

    What sum is involved in the option to buy?

    1. Dan kit says:

      3 million I believe.

    A real shame Arsenal is letting Marvro go for so cheap, while Chambers and Holding at the club. Unfortunately yet another bad decision by the club in the transfer department.

    It’s clear not everyone can play or even have a spot at Arsenal, but with Holding, Elneny, Chambers, Soares, there is still too much mediocrity and loss of better players.

    It’s fine that we are losing Mavro, but also thought club didn’t rate him highly enough in terms of the money he could produce by selling him. Why the option to buy was so low I don’t understand. Especially when he performed there well last season. But there are again things we don’t know. If Stuttgart were Mavro’s only pursuers for a loan then they held the cards and club may have figured 5mill was better than paying his wages and probably losing him for nothing eventually. How Arsenal sell their players is a very clear thing Arsenal need to get much better at because we havent made a good sale in ages. Ox and Iwobi the only real ones over a long span of time.

    Anyone should have been able to see when he played a few games for us early on that mavro was a full blooded no nonsense defender even at that early age. With the right people around him guiding him he was always going to be a good defender. This pisses me off! Anyone can see that Pepe will never have enough heart and desire to be a top notch player and it better to plan without him in the team and accept the 72 mill as a loss. The sooner the better. Wake up Arsenal!

    Ben Chilwell making the team makes me wonder about the selection . M Hummels just got sent off for Dortmund who suffered humiliating back to back losses to Ajax in the CL is also questionable.

    1. RSH says:

      mustafi reguarly made these teams as well. something about their algorithm favors certain defenders.

    how is that even possible considering our manager’s infallible record regarding player evaluations and all things asset management related…thankfully we’re in line to receive a king’s ransom from his present employers if they pick up his option…savvy move on the part of our administrative wing to protect our best interests…oops
