According to reports, Arsenal target Shkodran Mustafi appears to be edging closer to a move to Arsenal this summer.
Wenger has stepped up his search for a centre-back following Mertesacker’s injury. The veteran defender is set to miss the start of next season due to an injury and with Gabriel as well as Koscielny also ruled out of the club’s opener against Liverpool, Arsene Wenger is keen to bring in an experienced defender.
Valencia’s Mustafi is believed to be keen on a move away from the club and the Spanish club are willing to sell the player.
Previous report states Arsenal are believed to have made a £15m bid – only about £25m under Valencia’s valuation for the German international.
It seems a deal could be reached as Mustafi has been missing from training due to negotiations but Valencia has debunk the claims he is out due to a knee injury.
