Arsenal take expensive transfer decision on biggest prospect’s future


One of the biggest prospects at Arsenal is Konstantinos Mavropanos, but his quality is not being enjoyed at the moment because of his lack of playing time.

The Gunners chiefs have therefore agreed, according to reports to send him out on loan for the 2020/2021 season to be able to continue his development, rather than remain at the club without no playing time.

Arsenal can boast of eight defenders and with the coming of William Saliba, it would be difficult for the 21-year-old to secure regular playing time, having made just eight appearances for the North London outfit, since he joined.

He joined FC Nurnberg in January for a loan deal and his 12 appearances for the club were hailed as an impactful one for him. Because of his impressive performance in his short loan spell at the German Bundesliga outfit, he is reported to be on the wanted list of a number of clubs.

Stuttgart is reported to be keen on his signature as well as Werder Bremen, amongst other suitors. Reports claim that Arsenal chiefs are already working to secure a good loan deal for the youngster and have been holding talks in that regard with the player set to sign for Stuttgart.
