Arsenal centre-back Shkodran Mustafi made yet another catastrophic mistake last time out for the Gunners in the Premier League when his clumsy and needless tackle in the penalty area saw his side concede a penalty against Crystal Palace.
The German is no stranger to making defensive errors and has failed to consistently impress during his time at the Emirates Stadium. Considering he cost the Gunners, then under Arsene Wenger’s stewardship, more than £35 million to bring from Valencia in 2016 he must be considered as a terrible signing by the north London club.
Wenger signed some duds during his time at the helm, but none as costly as the 26-year-old. The likes of Andre Santos, Sebastien Squillaci, Marouane Chamakh, Mikael Silvestre, Park Chu-Young, Francis Jeffers and Igors Stepanovs were all poor signings, but none cost more than £8 million.
With a price tag of more than £35 million, pound for pound, Mustafi must go down as Wenger’s most unsuccessful Arsenal acquisition.
What do you think, Arsenal fans – where does Mustafi rank amongst Wenger’s worst signings?
