Arsenal defender Konstantinos Mavropanos is in talks with FC Nurnberg over a loan move.
The 22-year-old has struggled with injury during the current campaign, making just one appearance for the Gunners.
That came against Standard Liege in the Europa League back in December and he is now set to leave on loan.
Standard Sport understands Arsenal are in talks with Nurnberg over a deal for the youngster that would run until the end of the season.
The 2. Bundesliga side are in the market for a centre-back and have identified Mavropanos as a viable target.
Nurnberg are now in talks with the defender and a deal could be completed by next week if negotiations progress well.
Arsenal are themselves looking to add to their backline in January and have been linked with Bayern Munich centre-back Jerome Boateng.
Dayot Upamecano of RB Leipzig is another target, but he may not be available until the summer window.
