​Mustafi will not 'go to war' with Arsenal over future

Arsenal star Shkodran Mustafi says that he will not "go to war" with the club over his future.

The German defender is not happy about his situation at the club, given he is not a first team regular.

Mustafi was denied a transfer away from Arsenal during the summer transfer window.

But he will continue to give his all for the club so long as he is still there.

"My father, who is my agent, spoke to the club," said Mustafi to Sport Bild.

"I am an Arsenal player and still have two years left on my contract.

"I've never been someone who begins a war when something doesn't work out.

"I always said: If it is possible, I am open to take the next step. If not, I keep playing my football.

"The manager [Emery] said he sees me the same way he sees every player in the team. That's why I played today and that's it.

"We are going to see what the future holds."
