West Ham United are now being linked with a move to sign Arsenal centre-back Konstantinos Mavropanos by German publication BILD.
Hammers boss David Moyes needs to bolster his central defensive ranks at the London Stadium in January and it seems as though he could go shopping at Arsenal.
Gunners defender Konstantinos Mavropanos moved to The Emirates way back in January 2018 but he has barely played for the north London outfit.
The 24-year-old has made just six Premier League starts for Arsenal and he hasn’t had a look-in under Mikel Arteta.
Mavropanos has been farmed out on loan three times since moving to The Emirates and is currently spending the season in the Bundesliga with Stuttgart.
And it seems as though the seven-capped Greece international has caught the eye of Hammers boss David Moyes.
West Ham keen to sign Arsenal centre-back Konstantinos Mavropanos
BILD claims that West Ham are keen to sign the 24-year-old Gunner.
Borussia Dortmund and Newcastle are allegedly interested in acquiring his services as well.
Stuttgart have an option to buy him for just £2.5 million from Arsenal. They could of course exercise that and then sell him on for a massive profit.
Mavropanos has been in superb form for Stuttgart this season. In 13 Bundesliga outings, he has scored four goals and averaged 1.8 tackles, 2.3 interceptions and six clearances per match. The Greek ace has also won an average of 3.2 aerial duels per game (Who Scored).
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.
Whether we will be able to prise him away from Arsenal or Stuttgart in January, however, remains to be seen.
