Arsenal are set to sign the Greek defender Konstantinos Mavropanos from PAS Giannina for a fee of £1.9m (€2.1m). The 20-year-old has travelled to London to complete the move this week.
Mavropanos is regarded as one of the best defenders to emerge in Greece in the past 10 years. He made his debut in the Greek Super League for PAS Giannina as an 18-year-old in November 2016 and has made 20 appearances for the team in all competitions.
Mavropanos thus joins compatriots Panagiotis Retsos, Kostas Manolas and Sokratis Papastathopoulos in sealing a move to one of Europe’s most prestigious clubs.
Arsenal see the transfer as a prime investment for the future, in the hope that he will develop into a top Premier League defender in the coming years.
Mislintat, who identified and scouted the player, is expected to focus heavily on bringing the best young players to Arsenal, and Mavropanos’ arrival could be the start of several sought after European talents signing for Arsene Wenger’s side this season.
