To be honest I have not been too impressed with the Germany international Shkodran Mustafi since he was signed by Arsenal from Valencia last summer. He has certainly not been the powerful presence at the back that we thought he would be after becoming easily our most expensive defender at around £35 million.
Having said that, the whole Arsenal defence has been pretty damn awful so far this season, and that includes the pre-season games as well when Arsene Wenger was forced to use Mohamed Elneny at centre back due to his lack of options.
So unless the last two days of the summer transfer window sees Arsene Wenger bring in at least one more quality defender to bolster our shaky back line I cannot see any value in letting Mustafi leave. Sky Sports are reporting that the Italian Serie A club Inter Milan have made a second transfer bid for Mustafi and it looked as though Wenger would sell and replace him with Evans which would not be too bad even though I am not exactly taken with the West Brom man either.
Now that Evans has apparently rejected the move, will Arsenal have to say no to Inter and keep the German?
