Mustafi has offered a glowing tribute to his soon-to-be former manager and joined the chorus of Arsenal players vowing to bow out on a high.
“Arsene Wenger has achieved an unbelievable amount with Arsenal, the club is incredibly grateful," Mustafi told Kicker. “Twenty-two years – nowadays in football that's pretty much unique. An era is ending.
“I'm extremely grateful that he has believed in me and wanted to bring me here. We obviously want to give him the farewell he deserves. Best case scenario: that will include a trophy.
“All I know is we want to win the Europa League. We have to beat them and I think we can set a great foundation at home to finish the job in the second leg."
