According to the latest reports in the Fanatik newspaper, Turkish giants Galatasaray are keen on bringing in Arsenal‘s defensive ace Shkodran Mustafi. However, the Lions are looking to sign him on a loan deal as they cannot afford to spend much after Financial Fair Play started to tighten their screws on them. On the other hand, the Gunners are only willing to sell him permanently and they have put up a price tag of £22.3m for the German defender.
The 26-year-old defender had a below-par outing last campaign as the Gunners missed out on a top 4 finish. The German defender was on the back of a lot of individual errors which cost the team dearly but he is set to keep his place in the squad under the new management of Unai Emery.
The player still has three years left in his contract and the German is set to get another opportunity to prove himself at the Emirates. However, from the pieces of evidence he showed last season, many fans are of the opinion that he should not start come the new season.
It seems unlikely now that Emery will sell Mustafi in the summer as the window is drawing to a close and finding a replacement for him in such short time will be tough but they are willing to sell the 26-year-old for £22.3m. It is extremely unlikely that such demands will be met by Galatasaray. He made 38 appearances for the London club last season and was found wanting at the back more often than not.
Arsenal faithful will be hoping that Mustafi is able to imporve from the experience of last season. Emery has brought in Sokratis Papastathopoulos to ease the reliance on the German and he will have to fight for his place to get regular playing opportunities in the upcoming season.
