Arsenal close in on Mavropanos transfer

The Gunners have confirmed the signing of young Greek defender Konstantinos Mavropanos from PAS Giannina.

The north London side are sure to be linked with a host of other players in the coming weeks as the January transfer window gets into full swing.

It is understood Arsenal want to tie-up a permanent deal for the Greece U21 global before sending him out on loan to German side Werder Bremen.

Having made his PAS debut last season, the U21 worldwide has made 14 appearances in the Greek Superleague this season, scoring three goals.

While Arsenal are now short of options at centre-half with both Laurent Koscielny and Nacho Monreal sidelined through injury, Mavropanos will not be considered for the first-team this season.

Now officially an Arsenal player, Sky Sports report the Bundesliga club are now expected to bring him in.

Arsene Wenger has revealed that the plan for Mavropanos is for him to go and gain first team experience out on loan before he is ready to play for Arsenal, with a potential destination being Germany.

Meanwhile, Wenger has spoken out about what business he hopes to get done this month.

"We will do, but when is very hard to say because that does not depend only on us". It depends a little bit on the injuries as well.

According to Marcus Christenson and Antonis Oikonomidis at the Guardian, the highly-rated Mavropanos is in London to finalise a deal worth £1.2 million.
