Shkodran Mustafi exit back on thanks to Liverpool move

Liverpool are believed to be closing in on a deal to sign Schalke defender Ozan Kabak, with the German side eyeing Arsenal’s Shkodran Mustafi as his replacement.

The Reds have been strongly linked with a number of defenders in the current window, including former Gunner Sokratis, before supposedly holding an interest in Mustafi also.

While that deal isn’t expected to go ahead, it is Liverpool’s transfer activity which is to seal an exit for our 28 year-old, who has fallen way down the pecking order in North London.

Mustafi finds himself behind Rob Holding, Pablo Mari, Gabriel Magalhaes and David Luiz, while Calum Chambers is also in competition for minutes at centre-back also.

He was believed to have asked the club to allow him to leave on a free transfer, similarly to the deal we came to with Sokratis, but he now looks set to move on regardless.

Ozan Kabak is believed to be having a medical ahead of a move to Anfield, which will see Schalke move to bring in Mustafi as his replacement.

Which other players should Arsenal be actively looking to offload today? Would Mustafi’s exit open the door for a new defender to come in, or do we have enough cover already?

  1. Will we get any money for him is the question?
    Another one gone, we have done well trimming the squad. Willock to Newcastle on loan maybe?

    I’d keep AMN for insurance for any injuries as he is a utility player like Chambers, can fill a gap in a few positions.

  2. Am disappointed by Arteta. He brings ppl who are no better than those we have at the club. He,s also said to have favouritism whereby some are treated better than others. Next time, look in Germany, Austria or Check republic for manager.
