Many Liverpool fans reacted in horror to reports that the Reds are interested in bringing Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi to Anfield this month.
According to the Evening Standard, Jurgen Klopp’s side are taking interest in the out-of-favour Gunners’ centre-back in light of the club’s catastrophic injury crisis.
Mustafi has not featured since Boxing Day as Liverpool are allegedly looking to see who is available before Monday’s deadline. The former Germany international has scored nine times from 151 appearances and is out of contract this summer, meaning the Reds could potentially snap him up for cheap.
Should Liverpool sign Shkodran Mustafi?
Unsurprisingly, this did not attract a positive response on Twitter as @LFCTransferRoom shared the news and felt the full wrath of the Kop faithful’s frustrations.
Mustafi links not appreciated by these fans
“How did we get here?”
“Struggling to believe that we’ve had 3 months to plan for a CB to come in and have chosen Mustafi.”
“Oh god no anyone but him”
“Are you kidding me lmao”
“PLEASE NO! he’ll make a defence that is struggling for breath completely asphyxiated”
“If our interest in Mustafi is genuine I’d say our interest in winning anything isn’t, would just be about keeping Henderson away from CB and preventing more injuries. Really would be a woeful, utterly depressing signing.”
