Hector Bellerin has hailed the signing of Shkodran Mustafi, claiming the German has been an excellent addition to Arsenal squad.
The defender arrived at the Emirates in August for a fee of £35m and has been a revelation since his arrival.
He has gone on to forge a superb partnership with Laurent Koscielny, cementing his place on Wenger’s team list. The defender has also helped Arsenal remain unbeaten in every game he has played across all competitions and Bellerin has nothing but praise for the German.
“He has been a great addition to the team,” Bellerin told Arsenal Player [via Squawka] . “He has adapted really well to the way we play.
“He likes to come out and look for people up front, and doesn’t kick long ball balls, he looks to play the ball on the floor and that’s really important to the way we play.
“Defensively he has grown since the first day, he is really confident around the other players, he will tell you what to do, he is a World Cup winner as well and a leader.
“The stats show he is a very positive defender and he is helping us get clean sheets.”
No one can overlook Mustafi’s influence in our squad since he joined us. Indeed he has been an excellent addition to our squad. He has made the huge money we paid for his services look like a bargain fee and will go down as one of our best signings in recent years.
