According to the Daily Mail, Arsenal centre-back Shkodran Mustafi is most likely to seal a move to the Bundesliga in 2021.
It’s claimed that Shkodran is unlikely to be offered a new deal at Arsenal, meaning he looks set to quit the club at the end of the season.
He is now thought to be a target for teams in the German top-flight, where he has actually yet to play in spite of being a German international.
The star started out at Hamburg but left way back in 2009 in order to sign for Everton before heading to Italy with Sampdoria and Spain with Valencia.
He has been with Arsenal for the last four years, and whilst the player showed some improvement under head coach Mikel Arteta, the 28-year-old looks set to move on for free next summer.
With Gabriel Magalhaes signed, William Saliba on board and Rob Holding starting frequently under Arteta, there’s surely little way back in for Shkodran.
Corriere Della Sera claimed in September that Lazio wanted to land Mustafi, but they have since signed Wesley Hoedt, meaning a move for Shkodran may not be at the top of their agenda anymore.
Heading to Germany in search of senior team football could make sense, especially having told Bild in the summer that he would be interested in moving to the Bundesliga as Germany is his ‘home’.
Arsenal would get his £90,000 per week wages off the bill too, though the management may now be minded to try and sell in the January transfer market rather than lose him for nothing.
