Napoli are looking to sign a centre-back this summer to replace Kim Min-jae and one option they’re looking at is former Arsenal defender, Konstantinos Mavropanos.

Any move involving Mavropanos will benefit the Gunners as they have a sell-on clause inserted into the players’ contract.

According to reports, Napoli are looking to sign Konstantinos Mavropanos this summer, with Kim Min-jae edging towards a move to Manchester United. However the Italian side aren’t alone in the race.

Inter Milan, Fulham, Wolves, and West Ham are all reportedly interested in the Greek defender as well, which can only be good news for Arsenal who have a sell-on clause in the defender’s contract.

Mavropanos is currently playing his football in the Bundesliga for Stuttgart, who are in a relegation battle with just two games to play. The German side are in 17th, one of the automatic relegation places, and even climbing to 16th would put them in a relegation play-off.

If they want to secure their safety, Stuttgart need to make it into 15th – currently occupied by VfL Bochum, two points above them. Should Stuttgart go down, you’d imagine that would make a transfer even more likely, though it may also reduce their bargaining power.

Arsenal ideally want Stuttgart to sell the player for as a high of a price as possible, so Stuttgart staying in the league could be beneficial for the Gunners, if they can survive relegation this season.
