The Arsenal fans here in the Transfer Tavern are desperately flicking through the newspapers and various social media channels on their mobile phones, in an attempt to find some positive pieces of transfer news after a miserable summer so far.
Their luck could be in today however with one of our resident Gunners supporters spotting an article in The Times, which claims the club are close to the £20 million signing of Germany defender Shkodran Mustafi.
The 24-year-old is set to sign terms at the Emirates Stadium from Valencia and will bolster the club’s defensive unit considerably for next season.
The Arsenal fans in the Tavern for this evening’s quiz are in a much better mood following this news and are now hopeful of the club securing a striker too.
One of the Arsenal faithful is sat with his pals tucking into his beer and burger meal deal and he thinks that Mustafi is a shrewd piece of business by Wenger, stating that the defender has the ability to hit the ground running in the Premier League.
Arsenal fans, would you welcome Mustafi to the Emirates Stadium? Who else would you like to see follow him to the club?
