Gunners fans are drowning their sorrows this lunchtime in the Football Transfer Tavern, but news that has made it’s way through the doors here looks set to cheer them up no end.
According to reports from Sky Germany (via Sport Witness), Valencia defender, Shkodran Mustafi is set for a medical at Arsenal.
The German international has been linked with a £28m move to the Emirates as Wenger looks to nurse a defensive crisis before the end of the window.
The Gunners are without both Gabriel Paulista and Per Mertersacker who are on the long term injury list whilst Laurent Koscielny was rested against Liverpool on Sunday.
Wenger will be keen to get the deal for the 24-year-old over the line as soon as possible in order to calm the tempers of Gooners fans, especially those here in the bar at the Tavern.
Gunners fans, we want to hear from you! Do you think this deal will go through today? Where else do you need to strengthen before the Leicester game? Let us know below…
