Arsenal defender Konstantinos Mavropanos will have a host of Bundesliga clubs to choose from should he leave the Emirates this summer.

The centre back is currently on loan at Nuremberg, who he joined on a short-term deal in the January transfer window as he looked for regular game-time.

He’s found that at the club, establishing himself in the heart of their defence and with ten appearances in all competitions so far.

He will return to Arsenal in the summer, but his future at the club is in the air, with him likely to find playing time hard to come by once again.

Rumours in England have suggested that several Bundesliga clubs, as many as five, would be keen on a deal should he be ready to move on, and Bild confirm that today.

According to their information, there are ‘quite a number’ of interested parties in Mavropanos if he is to leave Arsenal.

His current club Nuremberg are one of them, as well as Wolfsburg, Werder Bremen, Stuttgart and Mainz with all of them having been interested in taking him on loan in January as well.

There is no mention of whether these clubs have contacted Arsenal about a potential deal as yet, but it is made clear that Mavropanos is considering his future.

While his plans are ‘not yet concrete’ and it’s unclear whether Arsenal want him back, he is ‘clear’ that he wants to take the next step in his career.

That means finding the regular game time that isn’t readily available at Arsenal and isn’t likely to be available should they push ahead with plans to add a centre back to their squad this summer as has been suggested.

That player’s arrival, plus the impending signing of William Saliba, would only push Mavropanos further down the pecking order and thus towards the exit door.

According to Bild he ‘can well imagine’ moving to Germany to get his wish, although he will only move to a Bundesliga club if he does.
