German World-Cup winner and Euro semi-final finalist Shkrodran Mustafi according to Spanish Marca (via Sport Witness) was welcomed to England on Sunday with a typical slice of native humour.
There were reports that, Customs officers at Gatwick airport lightheartedly question the Valencia player about signing for the north London club and the Spanish media have taken steps to point out the possible transfer is quite a big news for the Gunners fans.
The La Liga giants are still in England to continue their pre-season, and are staying at the Crowne Plaza in Marlow, which is conveniently located should a quick dash to Emirates stadium might be needed.
Still on the report from the Spanish media via the above-mentioned media source the Gunner’s interest in the Valencia defender is no secret, and claimed we have submitted a bid of around €25m plus bonuses for the services of the German international.
However, there are reports elsewhere claiming that the figure is absolutely €30m plus €10m in bonuses, which if the reports are anything to go by would sound right for the German defender and Valencia could be push to sell him for Arsenal.
The La Liga club financial issued were kind of fixed a little with the transfer of Andre Gomes too Barcelona, but the Spanish publication point out another sale is likely needed, and German and Dani Parejo are likely the club most obvious candidate set for a move out from the club.
