Juventus target surprise move for Mustafi, Arsenal fans react

Shkodran Mustafi did not have many backers within the Arsenal fanbase towards the end of last season.

The defender made some blunders at the back and was caught out a handful of times during the final few games of the campaign.

Unsurprisingly, this led to questions over his long-term position at the club.

The speculation intensified when Unai Emery replaced Arsene Wenger as manager, and the Spaniard has already made tweaks to the back line.

Right-back Stephan Lichtsteiner has joined from Juventus on a free transfer, while Sokratis has made the move from Borussia Dortmund.

Corriere dello Sport┬árecently reported that Juventus, who have also been linked with a shock swoop for Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo, are keeping tabs on Mustafi and see him as an alternative option to Bayern Munich’s Jerome Boateng.

Arsenal fans have been posting their thoughts on the rumoured transfer on Reddit.

Some have taken the reports lightly by making a joke of them, while others have contemplated the reality of being without Mustafi.
