Arsenal defender makes major transfer decision considering a sanctions deal
Dinos Mavropanos, an Arsenal defender, has stated that he might be on his way to Stuttgart on a permanent basis at the conclusion of his loan stay.
Dinos Mavropanos has confessed that at the conclusion of the season, he may see himself leaving Arsenal permanently.
The 23-year-old defender, who joined the Gunners from PAS Giannina in January 2018, has fewer than two years left on his contract at the Emirates Stadium, and it seems that the north London club has no intentions to extend his stay.
Mavropanos is presently on loan at Stuttgart in Germany, where he has excelled in the Bundesliga this season, scoring three goals and providing one assist in nine games despite being a centre-back.
Now, the Greek defender has spoken out about his Arsenal future, admitting that he sees himself sticking in Stuttgart for the long term.
When asked whether he wants to remain, he told BILD, “Of course I can picture it.” “However, we must wait and see. Everything is fantastic right now for me. The club as well as the city.”
Mavropanos will leave Arsenal permanently at the conclusion of the season, according to football.london, with manager Mikel Arteta authorizing the deal.
Despite his superb passing statistics in Germany this season, Arteta is said to have reservations about the Greek defender’s ball distribution.
As terms of Mavropanos’ loan agreement with Stuttgart, the Bundesliga club is obligated to make the transfer permanent for €3 million (£2.5 million) next summer.
If Stuttgart gets demoted to the second division, though, the alternative is no longer viable.
Arsenal will welcome back William Saliba from a loan stint at Marseille next season, and with Ben White returning in the summer, Arteta will have plenty of central defenders to choose from at the Emirates.
As a result, Calum Chambers’ contract at Arsenal will expire at the end of the season, with the defender possibly departing on a free transfer.
