Arsenal sets cut-price fee for Mustafi

Arsenal are ready to sell Shkodran Mustafi for a cut-price fee.

The Daily Express says the Gunners want to get around £9million (€10m) for Mustafi in the summer transfer window, with Mikel Arteta set to offload the German, who he does not have in his plans.

Mustafi has actually enjoyed a resurgence in form under Arteta, having previously struggled for consistency at the Emirates.

The World Cup-winning defender has been much maligned since a £30million switch from Schalke in the summer of 2016.

The 28-year-old, who used to be on the books of Everton as a youngster, has committed a series of costly mistakes throughout his time in the first team.

But under Arteta, he has enjoyed an improved run of form and arguably his best performances yet for the Gunners.
