first_imgThe father and agent of Shkodran Mustafi has admitted his son needs to look for a transfer away from Arsenal, though he warned whether that happens depends on the transfer market.Mustafi’s future at the London club is in doubt following manager Unai Emery’s revelation he has encouraged both the defender and Mohamed Elneny to depart the club before the close of the transfer window on the continent September 2.Neither Mustafi nor Elneny featured in Arsenal’s first two matches of the season, both victories for the Gunners.

But for that, it also needs market-driven transfer-fees.”Mustafi has made 115 appearances for Arsenal since his move in 2016, and made 31 Premier League starts last season – a high for him in London.But his three-year spell with Arsenal has seen Mustafi come in for criticism from fans, and the Germany international was subject to boos during the Gunners pre-season tour of the United States.While the exit of Laurent Koscielny appeared to potentially give Mustafi a lifeline back into the squad, the arrival of David Luiz at the transfer deadline again left him outside.Mustafi first came to England in 2009, joining Everton’s academy but never making a first-team appearance with the Toffees.Instead, he Sampdoria on a free transfer in 2014, making one appearance for the club in Serie B before their promotion to Serie A.After three seasons with Sampdoria, Mustafi made the move to Valencia, playing two seasons for the La Liga club.His time at Arsenal saw Mustafi claim silverware with the 2017 FA Cup.last_img read more
