Konstantinos Mavropanos spent two years at Stuttgart on loan from Arsenal and has moved for £3m

May 19, 2022

This marks the Gunners’ first transfer of the summer as the centre-back signed a contract that ties him down with his new club until 2025.

The defender joined Arsenal from Pas Giannina in 2018 but failed to convince manager Mikel Arteta and was sent out on loan to Nurnberg before joining Stuttgart.

The Greece international has promised to continue giving his best at the Mercedes-Benz Arena and paid tribute to the trust and affection he received from everyone at the club.

Mavropanos told Stuttgart’s official website: “I’ve always given my best and will continue to give my best for this great club.

“The trust of the management and the affection of the fans in Stuttgart serve as a great motivation for me.”

Mavropanos only managed a mere total of eight senior appearances at Arsenal in the last four years.

But the 24-year-old has been revived at Stuttgart and played a key role in helping the Reds confirm their Bundesliga status for next season, scoring five goals and adding an assist in 33 matches this term.

The Greek ace has amassed a total of 55 appearances across all competitions in the last two years with the club.
