Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi has agreed personal terms with Schalke and is now waiting for Ozan Kabak to join Liverpool before making the move.
That’s according to Sky Sports Germany, via journalist Max Bielefeld, who says the Arsenal defender will join the Germans on a six-month deal.
Mustafi has been heavily linked with a move away from the Emirates this month, having not featured under Mikel Arteta this season.
His contract at the club expires in the summer, and it’s been suggested that he will leave on a free transfer this month as opposed to running down his deal.

Reports today have suggested that he has become Schalke’s main target to replace Kabak, who appears to be edging closer to a move to Liverpool.
Sky now say that has taken a major step closer to happening, with Mustafi agreeing on personal terms on a six-month deal to head to the Bundesliga club.
He’s now waiting for Kabak’s move to Liverpool to be finalised so he can finally complete his departure from Arsenal.
