The Arsenal signing is loving the London sunshine ahead of their trip to derby rivals West Ham on Saturday evening

Shkodran Mustafi was loving the crisp London sunshine ahead of Arsenal’s trip to West Ham on Saturday evening.

The Germany international has enjoyed a promising start to life as a Gunners player after his £35m move from La Liga side Valencia in the summer transfer window.

Mustafi helped Arsenal return to winning ways in the Premier League last weekend after a 3-1 victory over Bournemouth at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

However, the German defender was given the night off as Arsenal lost to Southampton in the EFL Cup quarter-final in north London on Wednesday night.

But Mustafi should return to partner France centre-half Laurent Koscielny when Arsene Wenger’s side make the short trip to West Ham on Saturday evening.

And the Arsenal star appears to be loving life in the English capital after Mustafi posted the above selfie on his Instagram page and wrote the following caption: “🔙🔛🔝 The effect of the sun in London -> 😄#sm20 #smile”
