West Ham insist Konstantinos Mavropanos is not for sale after being linked with shock move to Italy

In response to rumors that Konstantinos Mavropanos would be sold this summer, a top West Ham spokesman said.

Though it took him some time to become a regular in the team, West Ham is finding that Konstantinos Mavropanos is worth the wait.
Following a few mistakes that marred his early, promising performances, the towering Greek defender has finally begun to settle into the Premier League.

West Ham: Mavropanos considers summer exit amid interest

Mavropanos performed admirably once more in West Ham’s draw with Spurs.

West Ham’s Greek tower of strength linked with shock move away

The 26-year-old, who stands 6 feet 4 inches tall, is bold, strong, and an aggressive tackler who possesses all the qualities of a top-tier center back in the Premier League.

His replacement is Nayef Aguerd, who is devoid of those qualities.

Mavropanos is starting to show that he is a serious contender to become the Hammers’ cult hero defender, following in the lines of James Collins and Craig Dawson.

Fans were therefore shocked when new rumors surfaced yesterday suggesting he would travel to Italy this summer.

Gazzetta dello Sport (print edition, March 22, page 8) reports that Inter Milan, the Serie A winners-elect, are interested in West Ham star Mavropanos this summer.

It’s concerning that after just one season with West Ham, there have been a number of recurring rumors linking the former Stuttgart player to a move to Italy.

The huge Greek center defender is reportedly being considered by Napoli as well, having failed to sign him in the summer, according to a report published on page 5 of Corriere dello Sport on March 4.

Good news from top Hammers source on Mavropanos

For almost £17 million, West Ham emerged victorious in the competition to sign Mavropanos, who at the time gave Hammers News exclusive confirmation of his transfer.

However, there’s positive news from the Hammers management today.

Due to the fact that West Ham maintains Mavropanos is not for sale despite rumors of a surprise transfer to Italy.

We discussed the rumors with the top source inside the club after becoming concerned about the ongoing links.

Furthermore, the main Hammers spokesperson ruled out a transfer.

‘Not for sale’

According to the insider, the Greek international is not up for grabs and would only be allowed to depart if, similar to other players, an incredible, game-changing offer came in.

The kind of offer Italian clubs in financial distress can no longer afford.

The senior West Ham insider told Hammers News, “Mavropanos is not for sale unless an absolutely extraordinary offer comes in which Italian clubs can’t afford.”

That’s it, West Ham supporters. You can relax knowing that the team is committed to keeping their new star.

Technical director Tim Steidten, if anything, will be looking to acquire a new partner this summer.

The Hammers will need to acquire two new center backs since Thilo Kehrer is set to make a permanent move to Monaco, Nayef Aguerd is going to be sold, and Angelo Ogbonna is probably in his last season.
