Italian champions Juventus are keen on a move to sign Shkodran Mustafi from Arsenal this summer supposedly.
The Old Lady sold Leonardo Bonucci this summer to AC Milan, with the Italian having fallen out with manager Massimiliano Allegri during the previous campaign, and are yet to replace the international star.
They are believed to be eyeing a deal which would bring Mustafi to Turin, but would the Gunners sell, and also would he want to go?
The German international moved to the Emirates from Valencia last summer in a reported £35 Million move, and the latest claims are that Arsenal are looking to recoup the fee they incurred.
Juve are said to have lodged an initial loan offer, only for our club to insist on a permanent deal or nothing, with a view to getting their outlay back.
The defender himself may prefer to stay put however, despite the wishes of the club (should the rumours be true), having previously talked of having unfinished business in England.
“To be honest at the beginning I thought I was done with England,” Mustafi said.
“It was really frustrating and probably the worst time I had as a footballer. I didn’t want to go there again.
“But then when it came down to making a decision to stay or leave, I thought I would only leave Valencia if I had the opportunity to go to England.
“I was thankful that I had another opportunity to make a step forward by coming to Arsenal.
“For the rest of my life, I don’t want to be patient anymore.”
It’s unknown whether he would see Juventus as a step-up to his current role, or whether their consistency in winning the Italian Serie A would play a factor in his mind.
Should Mustafi be kept at all costs? Would he see Juve as a step up? Would he be more likely to play a first-team role for them or Arsenal?
