One player some Arsenal fan expected to leave the club in the just concluded summer transfer window is Shkodran Mustafi as he is known to have lost his place as a starter at the Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners now have a number of centre-backs at the team, especially with the presence of Gabriel Magalhaes and William Saliba. This development has led to the relegation of some players, including Shkodran Mustafi.

It is now believed that Gabriel Magalhaes, Rob Holding, and David Luiz are more favoured than the likes of Calum Chambers, Sokratis Papa, and Shkodran Mustafi in the Mikel Arteta team.

However, the Daily Mail report claims that the North London outfit fans should expect to see more of Shkodran Mustafi until 2021 as amove to the German Bundesliga is in pipeline.

It is understood that Shkodran Mustafi is a target for some Bundesliga teams and there are chances that the North London outfit will cash in from his sale as he will no longer be needed.

Italian Serie A outfit Lazio is reported to be interested in the signature of Shkodran Mustafi but it is understood that he favours a move to Germany than Italy but that will not happen until an agreement is reached with Arsenal.
