Arsenal demands 22.5million pounds for defender
Arsenal Football Club are understood to have turned down a loan move for defender Shkrodan Mustafi as the club increasingly looks to get rid of him on a permanent basis.
The German has struggled to replicate the remarkable form of consistency shown at previous club Valencia and the Gunners have said to have lost patience due to his repeated error-strewn performances.
Galatasaray were said to have approached the North Londoners with a loan offer for the centre back but the English outfit have rebuffed their attempts and would only look to agree a deal should their valuation of 22.5 million pounds be met.
Arsenal new manager, Unai Emery is keen on revitalizing his side porous backline but would have to offload so as to free up funds for further additions into a squad depleted by the long-term injury of skipper Laurent Koscielny.
Mustafi has three years remaining in his contract and it remains unclear if the Turks would be keen on paying such a large sum due to the fear of falling under the wrath of Financial fair play, after being warned an incessant amount of expenditure could lead to its ban from European competitions.
