Arsenal could reportedly make defender Shkodran Mustafi available for transfer in an effort to fund other transfers (via The Standard).
It’s a busy week of transfer business at the Emirates with a number of players closing in on moves to Arsenal.
The likes of Lucas Torreira and Bernd Leno could complete transfers in the coming days but the transfer dealings won’t be finished there.
Reports suggest that a number of first-team players are expected to leave in a major squad shakeup.
Lucas Perez is expected to be told he can leave the club but it doesn’t stop there with the Telegraph claiming that Shkodran Mustafi could be made available for transfer.
Head of recruitment Sven Mislintat reportedly has doubts over Mustafi who could join Lucas and head for the exit door just two years after the Gunners spent £50 million on the pair.
- Dusan Vlahovic urged to complete ‘perfect’ transfer – not Arsenal
- ‘Break club record spend or look elsewhere’ Arsenal told
- Arsenal eye player Lionel Messi claimed to be ‘similar to Xavi’
It was always inevitable that some players would be sold from this squad. Shkodran Mustafi and Lucas Perez should attract around £15-25 million between them and Arsenal can expect more incomings from a couple of other stars in the coming weeks.
