Gunners open defender talks

13th January 2018, 15:01 by Bobbie Jackson

Arsenal are in talks with Greek club PAS Giannina to sign defender Konstantinos Mavropanos, according to reports.

The 20-year-old has emerged as a surprise target for the Premier League club, having only recently broken into the first team with his current employers.

Mavropanos only made his debut in the SuperLeague Greece last season and he has gone on to make 14 appearances this term.

Reports claim that Arsenal are in advanced talks to bring the defender to England but it’s understood that he will be sent out on loan to Werder Bremen.
