There were many rumours last summer than Shkrodan Mustafi was set to be sold to Inter Milan as deadline day approached, although both Ivan Gazidis and Arsene Wenger both denied it afterwards.
But perhaps Mustafi wishes he had left as he had an awful season as the Arsenal defence conceded more goals than ever before under Wenger, with the German being lambasted for many suicidal individual errors.
There were many Arsenal fans who believed that it was Mustafi himself who wanted out, and now that we have brought in Sokratis and Mavropanos, and given new contracts to both Holding and Chambers, the centre-back may finally be on his way.
Because of his youth and status as a World Cup winner Mustafi could still command a very high transfer fee, and there are very few fans that would oppose the Gunners cashing in on him while we still can, as another season like the last one could see his value plummet and that is even if he can get into Emery’s new starting line-up.
It is a given that Arsenal will have to unload some first team players from our bloated squad, so should Mustafi be top of our selling list?
