The transfer that would make all Arsenal fans happy could be back on

Rumours of a Shkodran Mustafi transfer keep on coming.

Just a few hours ago I wrote an article that had conflicting reports regarding Shkodran Mustafi getting a transfer to Inter Milan.

To quickly recap, Arsenal apparently offered Mustafi to Inter, however that was quickly contradicted by another report stating that the Italian giants had no plans to sign the German defender.

So, that one bit the dust quite quickly but don’t be too down because it is now being reported that he could be on his way to Turkish outfit, Galatasaray.

Turkish media outlet Fotomac as cited by the Daily Star is claiming that the 27-year-old’s agent will be flying to Turkey to sit down with Galatasaray bosses to hammer out a deal.

Now, this does sound credible and remember, this does not originate from the British tabloid but from the Turkish media.

The reason it sounds credible is that Mustafi has got himself a new agent just in time for this transfer window. To me, that is quite telling. It means that he is desperate for a move away from the Emirates.

There is no future at Arsenal for Mustafi, he must know that and if he wants to play regular football then he has to get a move somehow.

It is not being reported if this will be a loan deal or a permanent move but either way, it is in the best interests for all concerned that the former German international departs North London for pastures new this month.

    Good luck Mustafi! Hope you do regain your best form again and do well for the remainder of your career. Did not work at AFC, but surely will work elsewhere. KDB, Salah, Sterling should be examples for all struggling footballers.Arsenal was never a balanced team for the past 10 years, always weak in defense and that stretched to the midfield in the recent years. Wishing Arteta resolves the midfield tactically too. Defense would improve then.

      Very measured and respectful comment about the player. Not the crap I always read here calling players all sorts of derogatory names.

    2. Bobs says:

      Best comment ever in history of fan about players losing form

      More to come bro

  3. Best of luck to you, Mustafi as and when you go. Arsenal must now sign a new CB and a box to box midfielder in this winter window to stand any chance of making the top four. We are Arsenal and we deserve the CL.

  4. Mustafi has been a loyal soldier and maintained a very professional attitude even when Emery was cornered by the media and he brutally threw him under the bus by publicly blaming and telling him to disappear from the club.

    Unfortunately the reality is even though he bizarrely had some good stats, he was never a reliable defender. The fan who threw away his season ticket and it was returned to him, said Mustafi backs up more than a hard drive! 😂 That sums him up really, too scared to tackle so he just backs up vs Norwich and backs up vs Chelsea till the opponents score. He needs to rediscover himself at a new environment.

      Mustafi got impressive defending stats because he had to withstand the opposition’s pressure without the midfielders’ help

      Arteta’s tactics have forced the wingers to protect the flanks, but Mustafi still needs to fix his bad decisions

    Wish him well wherever he goes. He unfortunately did not peform to expectations but his off-field behaviour has always been exemplary.

  6. My brother wish you good luck wherever you go, always keep calm both in the pitch and off the pitch. Your gentleness and loyalty speak volume, just pray for you to always be 1st eleven. Good bye, will always Miss you. Arteater should bring a solid center back in that our defense will be solid and not forget midfielder Particular WILFRED NDIDI . GOD BLESS ARSENAL
