Jose Mourinho is set to break the bank to assemble a worthwhile team, Pep Guardiola and Antoine Conte also on a spending spree, and not to forget is Jurgen Klopp. If Arsene doesn’t want to face the wrath of Arsenal fans, he has to follow the managers path.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger according to report is lining up a swoop move for Valencia centre-back Shkodran Mustafi.
Wenger, 66, is looking to his forward ranks and the best of the defence this summer – with Mustafi top of his priorities.
However, the German world-cup winner has a £42.1million release clause in his current contract with the La Liga giants, but the north London club may be able to tempt Valencia into selling Mustafi for £25.3m, plus £8.4m in add-ons.
The German only recently returned to training with the La Liga giants following his stint with his national side at 2016 European championship, where he impressed at the heart of the country manager Joachim Low in defence.
Mustafi has 12 international caps to his name, he netted one goal during the country’s win over Ukraine in France this summer since he debut against Poland in 2014.
The 24-year-old has enjoyed two brilliant seasons with Valencia, he notched up 78 appearances and has netted six times since he move to club from Sampdoria in 2014.
However, the defender while Everton failed to play and make first team football under David Moyes before he was sold to Sampdoria in a bid to boost the Premier League giants transfer balance in the summer of 2012.
Our manager has already made on impressive signing this summer, by bringing in Rob Holding from Bolton but despite that, he will need at least one more at the defence following a long-term knee injury to Per Mertesacker.
