The London giants centre-back Shkodran Mustafi is most likely to make a move to Germany in 2021. It’s claimed that Germany international is unlikely to be offered a new deal at the Emirates Stadium, meaning he seems ready to leave the London giants at the end of the campaign.
Shkodran is now thought to be a target for clubs in the Bundesliga, where he has actually yet to play despite being a German international. Mustafi started out at Hamburg but left way back in 2009 in order to join Everton before heading to Italy with Sampdoria and Spain with Valencia.
The 28-year-old centre-back has been with Arsenal for the last four years, and whilst he showed some improvement under the Spanish boss, he seems ready to move on for free next summer. With Gabriel brought in, Saliba on board and Rob Holding starting regularly under Mikel Arteta, there’s surely little way back in for the German defender.
Lazio wanted to sign the World Cup winner, but they have since landed Wesley Hoedt, meaning a move for him may not be at the top of their agenda anymore. Heading to Germany in search of first-team football could make sense, especially having told over the summer that he would be interested in heading to the Bundesliga as Germany is his ‘home’.
Gunners would get his £90,000-a-week wages off the bill too, though they may now be minded to try and sell in winter rather than lose him for nothing. After winning the World Cup with Germany in 2014, Shkodran was signed by Valencia, where he stayed for two seasons, before transferring to the London club in 2016.
