Mustafi father announces Arsenal plans

The father and agent of Shkodran Mustafi has confirmed he's seeking to leave Arsenal.

Mustafi has until September 2 to complete a move to a foreign club, with manager Unai Emery also advising Mohamed Elneny to move on.

The former Valencia defender has another two years remaining on his current contract but his father Kujtim suggests a move is on the cards.

"Shkodran had a great time with Arsenal. We still have a contract for two years and can imagine to stay in London," he said in a statement.

“However the best for both sides is probably to work on a transfer. But for that it also needs market-driven transfer-fees."

Mustafi was linked with Monaco earlier this summer while a return to his homeland could also be on the cards before the end of the month.
