Sven's first signing?

No, we haven't sacked Wenger and appointed Sven-Goran Eriksson as manager (yet!). I'm on about that bloke we took from Dortmund in November...

So the news today is that Sven Mslintat has identified his first transfer target, 20 year old Greek centre half Konstantinos Mavropanos. Much like you, I haven't heard of him either, but he plays for PAS and from what I can see, he is over 6ft 3 and, after breaking into the PAS first team towards the end of last season, has done well this season and attracted interest from Olympiakos, as well as us.

Apparently he underwent a medical yesterday and will be signing for around £2 million, and we'll be loaning him straight out to Werder Bremen for the rest of the season.

It begins.

Goal.

This changes everything.

Well I guess it's been a really long time since we signed any decent young players.

What happened to the Polish tall kid we signed like 4 years ago? he was supposed to be the answer to our midfield problems.

He's injured, and more of a centre-back these days I think.

He was converted to a CB as we didnt have any at youth level and thsts how we ruined him

He did well at centre half on loan to Birmingham last season. He trained with the first team the other day, making his return from injury. Think there's a good chance he could go out on loan this month.

What if this new signing kills Holding?

Watched a 2 minute clip of this lad and he could be amazing or he could be another Gabriel. Looks very aggressive, flies into challenges.

Just what we need with our conceding penalties record of late.

Hopefully he kills Chambers instead. I don't mean this figuratively.

I know many of you are understandably cautious when it comes to youth players, but for me it'll be interesting to see what, if anything, this means for our other young CBs.

Mertesacker will be gone at the end of the season and, if current form is anything to go by, Koscielny and Monreal's top level careers are coming to an end as well. That's three of our four most senior centre backs, so we need proper investment and/ or some youth players stepping up.

Out of Chambers, Holding, Bielik and Sheaf, how many can you realistically stepping up to the required level?

Holding as the third CB.
