Konstantinos Mavropanos isn’t set to stay at Arsenal this summer, either leaving on another loan spell or in a permanent move away.

Football.London report that Konstantinos Mavropanos will either go out on loan for another campaign or depart in a permanent move this summer. It seems a stay with Arsenal for 2021/22 isn’t currently on the table.

Mavropanos has had a positive loan spell this season with VfB Stuttgart overall, even if it has had some drawbacks.

The defender initially struggled with a couple of injuries, only making his second appearance on loan on the 28th of November. After that, it took another couple of months for him to really break into the starting lineup on a permanent basis.

Since then, the Greek centre-back has kept his place consistently. The only match he’s missed since the start of February was through a suspension – due to an accumulation of yellow cards.

Mavropanos has featured in Teams of the Week, he’s earned a senior international debut for Greece, and a nomination for Bundesliga Rookie of the Month in February.

But recent results have slipped, with Mavropanos involved in four defeats in five games, conceding an average of more than two goals per game in those appearances.

You can understand why Arsenal might feel that despite Mavropanos’ progress, he still needs time to develop with a bit more consistency before playing Premier League football every week.

If they can achieve that with another loan, great. If not, it might be a good time to cash in while his stock is growing and he has a couple of years left on his contract.
