Reports have emerged this morning that Arsenal have joined the race to sign PAOK Thessaloniki and Greece wonderkid forward Giannis Konstantelias.

The Evening Standard have stated that The Gunners are expected to send scouts to watch the 19-year-old in January, joining a host of European clubs taking an interest in the youngster following a series of eye-catching displays.

Konstantelias is already known to Premier League scouts with the likes of Manchester City, Crystal Palace, Leeds United and Wolverhampton Wanderers as well as international clubs such as PSV and Valencia already known to be tracking the Greek teenager, who has been expected to make his senior national team debut during the next international break.

The young Greek star has long been expected to make it in the big time as Barcelona previously took Konstantelias on trial as a 15-year-old in 2018 but failed to agree on a €1million deal with his club. The versatile forward, who can play both up front and in midfield, is now valued at closer to £10m.

If PAOK agree a sale, it is widely expected that Konstantelias would remain on loan in Greece for the remainder of the season to aid his development further. His performance this season, which include four assists and three second assists in his last 12 matches, have helped PAOK climb to third in the Greece Super League.
