‘Good luck’ and ‘this will do him good’ – These Arsenal fans react after loan exit confirmed

Arsenal have confirmed that defender Dinos Mavropanos has joined FC Nuremberg on loan for the rest of the season.

The 22-year-old joined the Gunners in 2018 but has gone on to make just eight appearances across three campaigns in a bit-part role.

As per the club’s official statement, he will now spend the rest of this season with Nuremberg and both Arsenal and Mavropanos himself will no doubt see it as an opportunity for him to get regular playing time to help develop and improve his game.

While he has shown his quality at times, gaining experience and maturity will be key for him at this stage of his career, and with a lack of opportunities at the Emirates, it seems like a sensible decision for all concerned.

There was also a generally positive reaction to the news from Arsenal fans too, as seen in some of their tweets below, as they wished the defender well during his loan spell away from the club while also insisting that it was the right decision for him.

Arsenal will no doubt continue to monitor him and be hopeful that he does indeed now get minutes under his belt at a decent level, after which he will likely return in the summer to try and stake his claim again under Mikel Arteta.

In the more immediate future though, given Arsenal have conceded 31 goals in 22 Premier League games so far this season, giving them the joint-worst defensive record of the top 10 teams, they will surely be eager to bolster their defensive options to shore things up in that department.

As per The Sun, Shkodran Mustafi is also being linked with an exit this month, and so Arteta will surely be expecting reinforcements to arrive to fill those voids, with the Arsenal fans below certainly predicting some more business to come.
