Shkodran Mustafi is not the most popular Arsenal player, he is being booed by the fans, the club have made their intentions about selling him rather clear and you even have his teammate Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, liking an Instagram post about rumours of him leaving.
With all that you would expect the German to be eager to jump ship and seek pastures new but nope, not Mustafi, he wants to remain at the Emirates and prove himself.
His agent and father have made it clear that the German world cup winner does not want to leave and when you consider all that is lined up against the 27-year-old and he stills wants to stay then the prospects of him departing this summer are indeed bleak.
This is an issue for the club, they cannot force him out against his will and the options left open to them, banishing him to the youth teams as an example, are fraught with risk.
Unless there is a significant change in circumstances, be that a club Mustafi wants to join or a massive financial incentive then I cannot see him going anywhere this summer.
As things stand right now you cannot blame Mustafi for thinking he may get a chance to prove himself, the defence in the centre is hardly rock solid and with Arsenal involved in four competitions next season then he has to be thinking he will get more than enough opportunities to prove his worth.
I will not be holding my breath that Mustafi will be sold anytime soon.
