Watch wonderkid Arsenal transfer target Konstantelias pull off 'assist of the season' sending fans into meltdown | The Sun

ARSENAL target and PAOK wonderkid Giannis Konstantelias pulled off the "assist of the season" during a Greek derby against AEK Athens.

Konstantelias, 19, has turned heads around Europe amid a stunning season, which has seen him become a key player for the Salonika giants despite his young age.

That has led to interest from the Gunners, who also face competition from Premier League title rivals Manchester City.

Wolves, Leeds and Crystal Palace are also keeping tabs, while AC Milan and Red Bull Salzburg have joined the bidding war.

The playmaker put together another scintillating performance on Sunday as he guided Razvan Lucescu's men to a big 2-0 win against AEK at Toumba.

The Greece Under-21 international set up Khaled Narey's opener with a fantastic assist after just 14 minutes.

Konstantelias drove the ball forward towards Giorgos Athanasiadis' box but tripped and lost possession.

After a deflection from Harold Moukoudi, the ball returned to the teenage sensation who was still on the ground.

But the Greek starlet kept it alive and juggled it with three fantastic kick-ups, one of which was with his chest, while his back was still on the grass.

Konstantelias then passed it to Narey on his left and the winger beat Athanasiadis to open the scoring.

Another posted: "See what he's doing in his first year of professional football… Unmuched [sic] talent.."

A third wrote: "Such a great talent."


This fan commented: "Extremely talended [sic]."

And that one tweeted: "Freakin' sick control ability + assist!"

Konstantelias has amassed a total of one goal and six assists in 22 appearances this season.

Arsenal were linked with a £10million bid during the January transfer window.

Reports suggest Milan and Salzburg are willing to splash the same amount in the summer.
