At present, Mavropanos is considered worth half that. The main German side interested in his services - Eintracht Frankfurt - have reportedly tendered an offer in accordance with this and will presumably find it difficult to be persuaded to shell out more. It thus looks like, if Mavropanos is to be picked up by another club, it will likely be one of the richer Premiership sides on the Isle.
Mavropanos has been linked with Wolves. Atletico and Inter have also been rumored to be interested. Signs nevertheless point to a stay in Swabia if the BaWü club manages to avoid relegation. Kicker does note that the exit-clause only applies to top flight football. Stuttgart will almost certainly need to cash in on Mavropanos in the event of relegation.
Stuttgart are currently in 15th place on 28 points in the Bundesliga table with four matchdays remaining. The VfB are just above the relegation playoff place, currently occupied by VfL Bochum, on goal-differential. Sebastian Hoeneß' side face relegation rivals Hertha BSC this coming weekend.
