Arsene Wenger is expected to name his new signing in the Arsenal squad which faces Chelsea on Wednesday evening.
Winning the League Cup or Europa League is will now be considered Arsenal’s priority due to their desperate position in the Premier League.
The Gunners are preparing to take on the Blues in the semi-finals of the League Cup after being knocked out of the FA Cup by Nottingham Forest in the third round on Sunday.
And new defender Konstantinos Mavropanos is expected to be named in the 18-man squad for the trip to Stamford Bridge.
That report is according to the Guardian who are also claiming that Petr Cech will make way for David Ospina in goal once again.
New signing Konstantinos Mavropanos moved to the Emirates stadium last week in a deal which could prove to be a true bargain if he manages to grow into a star for the Gunners.
The role of the 20-year-old at the club for the rest of this season remains relatively unclear but with several injuries hitting the squad, he could be given an early opportunity to make his debut.
Arsenal are hoping to win the League Cup for the first time under Arsene Wenger this season.
