Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed the club would sign Greek defender Konstantinos Mavropanos from PAS Giannina in the Winter transfer window.

According to Wenger, Mavropanos will complete a move to the Emirates Stadium this week in a deal worth around 2 million pounds.

“Yes (he is joining us), but he’s not ready to play for us. We’ll give him out on loan,” Wenger said about the deal after Arsenal’s 2-2 draw with Chelsea on Wednesday night.

The 20-year-old Greek has impressed at both ends in his first full season in Greece’s Super League for PAS Giannina, scoring three goals in 14 appearances.
