Arsenal are looking to sign a central defender given Per Mertesacker is expected to be out for a few months due to an injury.
Reports suggest Arsenal are keen on signing Valencia’s Skhodran Mustafi, and have already contacted his representatives.
According to Marca on Saturday, Arsenal are willing to make a good deal for Mustafi, and are ready to put €30m on the table.
The German international yesterday arrived in Valencia, and is expected to start pre-season training alone from today.
Mustafi will travel to London on Sunday to join his rest of the teammates for pre-season training, which is rather handy for Arsenal.
Valencia still need to sell another player to avoid Financial Fair Play fines, and could be willing to strike a deal.
It is reported Mustafi has a release clause of €50m in his contract, and it’s highly unlikely Arsenal would want to pay that amount to sign the player.
