Arsenal to sign Greek defender Mavropanos, Wenger says

Arsenal to sign Greek defender Mavropanos, Wenger says”

Arsenal have marked their first signing of 2018, as they announce the completion of a move for a Greek starlet.

Mavropanos arrives for a reported £1.8m, joining from Greek Super League club PAS Giannina. He also added that the Arsenal fans will have to wait to see him in the first team as the Gunners are planning to send him on loan straightaway.

Mavropanos made 20 appearances in all competitions for Giannina, scoring three times.

Orestis Karnezis and Panagiotis Kone are two of the most high profile names to have swapped Greece for Udine in recent seasons and it's understood that Mavropanos turned down the club's proposal once he heard of Arsenal's interest.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger reportedly plans to loan the young star out to Bundesliga side Werder Bremen, rather than have him compete for a starting position, in order to continue his development with first-team football. "He will go out on loan", Wenger told a press conference.

"Yes [the signing is complete], but he's not ready to play", Wenger said after the match, as quoted by Goal.com.

Mislintat has been renowned for uncovering special talents, having helped bring Ousmane Dembele, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Robert Lewandowski to Dortmund.

The Gunners confirmed the capture via the club's official website on Thursday.
