Konstantinos Mavropanos is missing from Stuttgart training since he is in London to join with West Ham United.

According to Felix Arnold, West Ham United target Konstantinos Mavropanos was absent from Stuttgart training ahead of a move to the London Stadium.

The BILD reporter tweeted (20 August) that the Greek international’s talks with West Ham are “well advanced” and that he is already in London to finalize the transfer.Stuttgart and West Ham have achieved a “total agreement” for Mavropanos, according to Florian Plettenberg, in a deal worth £17.1 million plus add-ons.

West Ham fans will be pleased to learn that a deal for the former Arsenal defender is nearing completion, with the Greek in the city to finalize the agreement.The Hammers have been looking for a center-back all summer. With a deal for Harry Maguire clearly dead in the water, they moved quickly to negotiate Mavropanos’ move to the London Stadium.

Following his move from Arsenal to Stuttgart in 2022, he has rapidly established himself as one of the Bundesliga’s greatest young center-backs. While Moyes was interested in Maguire, the Daily Mail reported (16 August) that the manager is conscious of the necessity to act quickly in the market and move on from the Manchester United player.

Moyes would almost certainly be delighted to welcome Mavropanos to the club, as the 25-year-old can boast some good figures from his time in Germany. He appears to be a complete and active defender, with 1.92 tackles per 90 (77th percentile), 2.52 interceptions per 90 (99th percentile), and 3.42 aerial duels won per 90 (95th percentile) [FBRef].His ability to use his speed to quickly steal the ball from a racing forward demonstrates his dynamism and athleticism, which will be extremely beneficial to the Hammers.

Mavropanos is very skilled with the ball, averaging 5.00 progressive passes per 90 (89th percentile) and 1.32 progressive carries per 90 (91st percentile). Meanwhile, his ability to generate shot-creating actions from the defense (1.41 per 90 (95th percentile)) demonstrates where the Greek can make a difference on the other end of the field.
