Shkrodan Mustafi arrived at Arsenal as the third-most expensive defender of all time when we paid Valencia a rumoured 35m GBP for the German international, but has he ever performed for us at a top level?
In Wenger’s last season, we saw many comical errors from our defenders with Mustafi being at fault regularly, and Le Prof told us that he was lacking in confidence. Despite our hopes that Emery would improve him our defence has looked like a shambles when he plays, and after the Man City debacle Jamie Carragher made it clear what he thought of him. He said: “Stephan Lichtsteiner is not good enough.
“Maybe you could argue that’s because of his age, and the fella next to him Shkodran Mustafi has never been good enough since the day he walked through the door and that’s why all the goals came down there.
“To see Arsenal defend like that really, there’s a big job here for Unai Emery to do.”
Now a report in the Sun has suggested that Emery will be putting Mustafii on the market in the summer as he desperately tries to raise funds to improve our diabolical defensive record which has seen us concede 36 goals in our 25 League games so far.
I don’t know whether the rumour is true, and I’m not sure how much we would raise if we sold him, but do you think we should just rid of him once and for all?
