Arsenal are reportedly ready to place one of their defenders on the transfer market at the end of this season.
The Daily Telegraph claim that Arsenal defender Shkrodan Mustafi will be transfer-listed in the summer as Gunners boss Unai Emery tries to raise funds to strengthen the team.
2014 FIFA World Cup winner Mustafi has failed to live up to the hype that came with his transfer in 2016.
The former Everton and Sampdoria centre back signed for the Gunners from Spanish La Liga club Valencia in the summer of 2016 in a deal worth £35m thus making him the third most expensive defender in history.
Shkrodan Mustafi has been erratic at best during his three-year stay in North London.
The 26-year-old came close to leaving the club at the start of last season but Arsenal were unable to sign a replacement for him after Italian Serie A giants Inter Milan had made two bids for him.
The Arsenal defender came under scrutiny again at the weekend when the Gunners were beaten 3-1 at title challengers and Premier League champions Manchester City.
Arsenal manager Unai Emery is determined to strengthen his squad in the summer and he could raise funds if he manages to get Mustafi out of the Arsenal door.
