Wenger wants Bundesliga loan for Mavropanos

  Wenger wants Bundesliga loan for Mavropanos Arsenal are hoping to reach an agreement to loan out new signing Konstantinos Mavropanos to a German club, with talkSPORT reporting that Werder Bremen are the club most likely to land him. The Gunners confirmed the signing of the former PAS Giannina defender last week, spending a small fee of £2.2million on the 20-year old Greek. But Arsenal wants to loan the youngster out, to ensure he picks up valuable first-team experience, preferably at top level club. Talking about Mavropanos’ loan potential, Arsene Wenger said; “He is with us now, but the plan is for him to go out on loan to play somewhere.” “It can be a German club and I prefer him to play where he plays at the top level and gains experience.” “He is 20 and not ready to start for us, so it is important he gains experience.” The Greece Under-21 international has played just 20 times in senior club football with Giannina, scoring three goals.

Birmingham head coach Steve Cotterill has deemed Arsenal loan duo surplus to requirements, and could explore cancelling their loan deals, according to the Mirror.

Carl Jenkinson and Cohen Bramall joined the Blues’ in the summer during then-manager Harry Redknapp’s spending spree that saw 13 new players come in to St Andrews. However, the Gunners pair have unfortunately seen their loan spells turn sour.

Redknapp’s successor and former assistant Cotterill wants to cut his squad down so he can manage a more united unit for the relegation battle the club face, and neither Jenkinson or Bramall look likely to feature.

Jenkinson has made just one appearance for the club this season, despite returning to fitness following a shoulder injury. Bramall has also struggled for minutes, appearing just three times.

The Arsenal duo would join Everton’s Liam Walsh in having their loan deals cut short. The Birmingham boss has also shipped out his namesake David Cotterill and Emilio Nsue since taking charge of the club in October.
