Forgotten Arsene Wenger signing at Arsenal speaks out on his future under Mikel Arteta

Konstantinos Mavropanos says he’s still in the dark over his future at Arsenal and admits he could stay at Stuttgart beyond this season.

The Arsenal centre-back, signed by Arsene Wenger in 2018, penned a new deal with the Emirates club before joining Stuttgart on a season-long loan in July.

The Gunners were keen to keep the Greek defender on their books while he developed elsewhere, but Mavropanos suggests he hasn’t had much contact with his parent club.

So little in fact that the centre-back is considering making his loan move permanent, with Stuttgart said to be on board with signing Mavropanos in the summer transfer window.

Mavropanos told Bild: “I can’t say that at the moment (if I will return to Arsenal).

“Things can change quickly in football. I still have two months here in Stuttgart and would like to end the season with the team as high up as possible.

“The door at VfB is open for me [to stay another year] – that’s very good, but I can only think specifically about the future when we have talks with Arsenal for the new season.”

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta hasn’t spoken out about Mavropanos personally in recent weeks, but he did claim to be keeping in regular contact with players out on loan.

“We’re having meetings very often to assess what they’re doing and obviously, we’re getting all the information and watching their games because I want to keep a very close eye on what they’re doing,” said the Spaniard.

“We were talking for example with Ben Knapper, who is our loan manager, who is in charge of monitoring everything we are doing, and we are in contact with the players. Let’s see.

“It’s good news that they are playing and it’s good news that they have the possibility to have a lot of minutes because that’s going to give us a much better perception of where they are and how we can use them.”
