Transfer market expert Emanuele Giulianelli has confirmed that the transfer of Shkodran Mustafi to Arsenal should be completed this Wednesday.
The Valencia defender is a confirmed target for the Gunners after manager Arsene Wenger confirmed that negotiations are ongoing to secure the services of the player.
"We hope it [the signing of Mustafi] will be done," Wenger told French TV station SFR Sport.
"He is one of a number of players we are looking at, we are struggling to find the players we need, but we must be responsible.
"Mustafi is one of a number of players we are looking at, but, yes, negotiations are ongoing."
According to the Giulianelli, the Spanish giants are delaying the transfer hoping to receive an offer from another club.
But Arsenal continue to be in pole position to sign the Germany international and an official announcement could be made on the club's official website before Saturday's away game against Watford.
