Although every player will grow differently, it’s generally accepted that they need to start performing regular football once they start getting into their 20’s.
Konstantinos Mavropanos is now 22-year-old, and he’s only managed nine matches in the three years since he moved to the Gunners from Greece. He did seem like he had some promise in those games where he did work, but clearly, he’s not done enough in training to influence his managers.
It now seems like he could be on his way out of the club, as a report from Gazzetta in Greece has proposed he’s expected to leave in January. It does sound like it may only be a loan transfer for now, so it’s likely he could still have a career at The Emirates.
They also say he only performed 149 minutes under Unai Emery, but it doesn’t seem like the arrival of Mikel Arteta has done anything to change his status with the team.
The Arsenal defence has often seemed like a weak spot in the team, so it’s particularly damning on the Greek centre-back that he’s not been able to find a way into the side over the past few years.
It’s not clear which club he will be going to at this point, but it certainly sounds like he’s expected to leave.
