Konstantinos Mavropanos, the former Arsenal player, could make a €15m move to Wolfsburg in the upcoming summer transfer window, earning Arsenal €1.5m.
The German side Stuttgart, where the Greek international has been playing, bought him from Arsenal last summer for €3.2m following a two-year loan spell at the club between 2020 and 2022.
However, if Stuttgart are relegated from the Bundesliga, they will be forced to sell Mavropanos.
The defender has reportedly caught the eye of Wolfsburg, who are looking to sign him for around €15m.
That would represent a significant profit for Stuttgart, who would be able to sell the player for almost five times what they paid for him last year.
The 25-year-old has made 19 appearances for Stuttgart this season, scoring two goals.
The defender is often praised for his individual performances at centre-back, though he did give away four penalties as part of one of the five worst defences in the league.
Arsenal will benefit from any Mavropanos move, as they have a sell-on clause in his contract, believed to be around 10%.
Mavropanos arrived at Arsenal in 2018 from PAS Giannina for £1.89m and made just eight appearances for the club, none of which came under Mikel Arteta. He played four times under Unai Emery, once under Freddie Ljungberg, and three times under Arsene Wenger.
Mavropanos’ recent record-setting own goal in a German Cup clash against Paderborn was an unfortunate setback, but Stuttgart fought back and secured a 2-1 win, reaching the quarter-finals of the competition.
Despite this, it is clear that Mavropanos is a talented player, and it will be interesting to see how his career develops from here.
