Arsenal have completed the signing of young Greek defender, Konstantinos Mavropanos from PAS Giannina for a fee in the region of £1.8 million.
The 20-year-old defender broke into the first team of the Super League side this season, after impressing towards the end of last season.
Mavropanos already attracted interest from Olympiacos and Arsenal, with the Premier League side winning the race for his signature.
Reports have it that Arsenal’s new chief scout, Sven Mislintat has a personal relationship with the player’s agent, which played a key role in the signing.
Mavropanos would follow his compatriots Panagiotis Retsos, Kostas Manolas and Sokratis Papastathopoulos to Europe where the hope is that he develops into a ready-made Premier League player in the coming seasons.
