Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
With the latest reports from various media, it looks as though Arsenal deal with Valencia for Shkodran Mustafi is getting to be finalized.
The German international has apparently agreed to join the Gunners and the small matter of a transfer fee is now the only obstacle preventing him becoming a Premier League player.
Luckily, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is willing to get the deal close as soon as possible and he’s reportedly willing to part with whatever sum the La Liga club are requesting for the German.
It would be very unlike Arsene Wenger to sign a player and drop him straight in the first team without having trained alongside them first and so his comments on regarding buying a defender before Saturday are still totally relevant here.
There is a report via a Sky Sport journalist via Twitter that Mustafi has £42m release clause in his contract and the La Liga are willing to accept bid for as low as £30m for the high-rated German.
