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.
Report coming from Spanish outlet is claiming there are report from Valencia that claimed Arsenal are showing less interest in German international Shkodran Mustafi.
As per the report, it claimed that the Gunners admit that price reported by German media is some €7m higher than Valencia were asking for the player in June (€32m v €25m).
The report also claims the La Liga giants will neither confirm nor deny that they are in talks with the north London club having previously confirmed they’ve not receive any bid from us.
The report added that, the inflation in his deal with the Gunners is likely to be due to fact that he’s an experienced international player who would leave an huge hole when he leaves the Los Che.
This reports however, seems to be confusing in all aspect, there are various reports from top sources claiming Mustafi is set for Medicals, some claims he move to the Emirates stadium has been completed and he’s spotted in an Arsenal jersey.
As with any transfer story on media now, we need to take this report with a pinch of salt until something concrete comes out but undeniably Mustafi moving to the Emirates stadium.
Mustafi would be an ideal upgrade to his compatriot Per Mertesacker ruled out of the squad until next year, which same also applies to Gabriel Paulista long-term knee injury.
