The Arsenal owned centre-back is currently out on loan in the Bundesliga with Stuttgart.

The German club have an option to sign the Greek ace for just £2.5 million (BILD).

Mavropanos has been a real hit with Stuttgart.

In 15 Bundesliga outings, he has scored four goals and averaged 1.9 tackles, 2.4 interceptions and 5.8 clearances per match. The Greek ace has also won an average of 2.8 aerial duels per game (Who Scored).

Considering his fine form in the Bundesliga, there is a very good chance that he will be snapped up on a permanent deal by the Germans.

Stuttgart may well then decide to move him on once again for a massive prophet.

West Ham quoted £21 million to sign Mavropanos in January

BILD claims that the Hammers will have to shell out a hefty fee in order to sign the 24-year-old in January.

£21 million sounds like decent value to us though, considering just how dominant he has been in Germany so far this season.

The Bundesliga’s official website has described the Arsenal loanee as an ‘excellent’ defender as well as a ‘gladiator’.

We think the 24-year-old Arsenal centre-back would be a very smart addition for West Ham, what with his height, physical prowess and reading of the game.

Considering our current problems in the centre-half department, signing Mavropanos in January would be a very smart move by David Moyes.

The Greek defender would provide very strong competition for Issa Diop and Craig Dawson as well as Kurt Zouma and Angelo Ogbonna when the Frenchman and Italian return from injury.
