A strong defender who can play either as a centre-back or slot in the left-back position, Sarr has played 19 times this season. While Arsenal are yet to make any concrete offers, Torino are in a more advanced position to lure the player.
While the speculations regarding a new defender goes on, the north London club are set to lose another in Konstantinos Mavropanos. The 22-year-old spent the latter half of the previous campaign ,on loan at Nurnberg, making 12 appearances in Bundesliga’s second tier.
Many top tier German sides were interested in him but he chose to join Stuttgart thanks mainly to their sporting director Sven Mislintat. Mislintat also brought the Greece international to the Emirates back in his time as Arsenal’s head of recruitment. He has made just eight appearances for the club till now, but keeping in mind his age and his improvement in recent times, the club is happy to keep hold of him. He signed a new contract at Arsenal, before making a season long loan switch to the newly promoted German side.
