Insider claims Arsenal will make official bid for this player today
Arsenal are set to make an official bid to sign Shkodran Mustafi from Valencia, according to Emanuele Giulianelli
Arsenal will make an official bid to sign Shkodran Mustafi from Valencia on Tuesday, according to Italian journalist Emanuele Giulianelli.
The Gunners are thought to be on the lookout for a new defender as Arsene Wenger looks to bolster his rearguard options ahead of the start of the season.
The urgency of Arsenal’s search for a new defender is likely to have gathered pace over the weekend after Gabriel Paulista suffered a suspected ankle injury in the pre-season win over Manchester City on Sunday.
Arsenal are thought to be keen on bringing Mustafi, 24, to The Emirates from Valencia – and now, reporter Giulianelli says a bid is imminent.
As expected Arsenal are going to be submitting a bid for Mustafi tomorrow. #AFC
