His team are 10th in the Greek first division, and Mavropanos is rated as one of the most promising youngsters in the country.
However, the prodigy is unlikely to feature for Arsenal this season.
It’s believed he will be loaned to German side Werder Bremen for the remainder of the campaign.
Wenger does remain interested in signing an experienced centre-back though.
And the Frenchman’s top choice is believed to be Chelsea fan favourite David Luiz.
The Brazilian is out of favour at Stamford Bridge and appears to have been replaced by Andreas Christensen in defence.
However, Antonio Conte wants to keep hold of Luiz, meaning Arsenal may have to break the bank to secure his signature.
