Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi ‘would think about it’ if a suitable offer were to be made for him this month.
That’s according to his father, and agent, Kujtim Mustafi, who has told Transfermarkt his son would be open to leaving the Emirates should a decent proposal be on the table.
Mustafi joined Arsenal in a £36.9m transfer from Villarreal in 2016 as the Gunners looked to solve their centre back issues.
His time at the club has not been successful, though, with the German often coming in for criticism for a series of disappointing performances.
This season he has managed just 12 appearances in all competitions, and less than 1000 minutes in those games, suggesting he is now far down the pecking order at the club.
It is also not a good situation for a player with Euro 2020 around the corner, and while he is not looking for a transfer, his agent admits they would assess their options should any club make their move.
“He’s not a stressor. He’s currently having a difficult time in London, but he’s not someone who spreads unrest or brings bad spirits into the team or club,” he told Transfermarkt.
“If something good were to come now, we would think about it. We’re not going to hell looking for a change.
“It must make sense and fit for him. Shkodran is the one who shows us the way and gives us direction.
“There is always a market for an internationally experienced defender. We always get inquiries. He felt very comfortable in Italy and Spain.
“He has never played in Germany, so maybe that’s an option. Then he has played in the top four leagues.”
