Juventus are interested in signing Shkodran Mustafi in January, according to the Daily Cannon.
Despite Wenger ruling out the sale of any member of the team in January, reports haven’t stopped linking some players with an exit.
One of the surprising names that’s been rumored to be on the way out is Mustafi.
The defender recently revealed he isn’t considering leaving the Emirates anytime soon but that hasn’t been enough to shut the exit rumors.
He was heavily linked with a move to Inter in the summer transfer window but the move failed after Arsenal refused to sell.
And now it is Juventus who are reportedly keen on his signature.
I would like to imagine that Arsenal won’t entertain any bid for the German in the new year. It’s barely 18 months Mustafi joined us and although he’s had some tough times, he’s arguably one of our best defenders.
If you look at his performance against Manchester United last month, it would be hard to believe that Wenger would sanction his sale.
Why Mustafi is being linked with a move away from Arsenal is beyond me. He’s adapted well to the demands of the Premier League and is on his day one of competitions best centre back. I would like to think there is nothing in these reports.
