It has been confirmed that Dinos Mavropanos will spend the second half of the season on loan at German second-tier outfit FC Nurnberg.
The centre-back has only featured once for Arsenal this season in the 2-2 draw with Standard Liege in December and is in desperate need of senior football.
The 22-year-old has struggled with a series of groin injuries since he was signed on the advice of Sven Mislintat from Greek side PAS Giannina. His fitness struggles mean he’s not been able to string a run of games together and that in turn has affected his confidence.
FC Nurnberg, currently 16th in Bundesliga 2, are facing a relegation battle in the coming months. Here’s hoping Mavropanos can lend them a hand.
Given Calum Chambers is out for the season it does leave us short on cover at the back. Perhaps we’re confident of recruiting a replacement before the window closes in a couple of weeks time? We’ll see.
