Arsenal’s move for Valencia ace Shkodran Mustafi appears to be in doubt, with Super Deporte claiming that the player’s dad has revealed that there’s no deal between the clubs or with his son.
The Gunners have been heavily aligned with the German World Cup winner over the course of the past few days as Arsene Wenger reacts to an injury crisis at centre-back in north London, with claims that a move could be done within ’48 hours’ doing the rounds.
These suggestions follow comments from Mustafi’s alleged agent, Ali Bulut, that, although no arrangement is in place, talks are at an advanced stage.
However, Super Deporte have dropped a massive bombshell, revealing that Mustafi’s dad has called the club to discuss the situation, with Bulut NOT his son’s representative.
Further to this, the player’s father is understood to have claimed that there is no deal being worked upon with Arsenal and that the defender is happy to stay at Valencia.
If true, it appears that the Gunners are facing a real battle to snap up the EURO 2016 ace, and it may explain recent links with Barcelona’s Jeremy Mathieu.
