Insider confirms: £50million international star is waiting to sign contract to join Arsenal


Sky Sports Germany reporters Marc Behrenbeck has revealed that defender Shkodran Mustafi is desperate to join Arsenal.

According to Behrenbeck, the Germany international has already agreed personal terms with the Gunners and is waiting to sign a contract to finally make his move to the Emirates.

At the start of the week, Valencia manage Pako Ayestaran has made it clear that the Germany international as well as striker Paco Alcacer will not be sold by the club.

"Mustafi is not for sale and will not be leaving the club," he is quoted as saying by Goal.

"With [Paco] Alcacer I can be as firm as with Mustafi, [club president] Lay Hoon already said it.

"The president has said in public that Alcacer and Mustafi are not for sale and I have to believe her."

But the 24-year-old has already made up his mind and has made it clear that he wants to embark on a new adventure in the English Premier League.

The only problem for Arsenal at the moment is the £50million Valencia want to sell the player, a fee that manager Arsene Wenger is not ready to meet.
