Arsenal in danger of missing out on Mustafi

Arsenal look set to miss out on signing Valencia defender Shkodran Mustafi according to new reports.

It was earlier reported that Mustafi had agreed a move to the Emirates, with negotiations ongoing over the transfer fee, with Arsene Wenger also saying over the weekend that a deal “will be done” before the transfer deadline.

However, Mustafi’s buy-out clause now is proving to be a major stumbling block.

Valencia insist that the only way Mustafi will be allowed to leave is if Arsenal trigger his €50m (£43.1m) buy-out clause.

 Arsenal have had problems at centre-back since Per Mertersacker was ruled out until the New Year, with Gabriel Paulista also struggling to be back in action within the next six weeks.

The Gunners signed 20-year-old Englishman Rob Holding from Bolton, while Poland youngster Krystian Bielik is also being developed as a centre-back.
