… “won’t be sold this transfer window” 404251-baa42a7271f893f2c7d886eceddad965-52859-d41d8cd98f00b204e9800998ecf8427e (1)

Arsenal seemed really close to sign German centre-back Shkodran Mustafi but now Valencia manager, Pako Ayestaran, dampened the Gunners enthusiam claiming the defender won’t be sold in this transfer window:

“Mustafi is not for sale and will not be leaving the club,” the coach said.

It was rumoured that Mustafi had agreed a move to the Northern London side, with negotiations ongoing over the transfer fee, while Arsene Wenger said over the weekend that a deal “will be done” before the transfer deadline.

However, Mustafi’s £43m buy-out clause now seems likely to prove a major issue in the negotiation.
