Shkodran Mustafi in action for Arsenal against Stoke
Monday, August 28, 2017
Italian champions Juventus have been keeping tabs on Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi, as an alternative to Schalke’s Benedikt Howedes.
Mustafi was dropped to the bench for Arsenal’s 4-0 hammering at Liverpool on Sunday, further suggesting his long-term future is away from the Emirates.
Inter Milan have been chasing the defender and the Germany international has reportedly told Arsene Wenger he is ready to quit Arsenal before Thursday’s deadline.
Inter are believed to be in pole position to sign Mustafi if he is indeed allowed to leave the Gunners this week, but the Serie A giants could face stiff competition from Juventus.
The Italian champions are trying to sign Schalke defender Howedes but, according to Tuttosport, they are not losing sight of other attainable targets as well and are chasing the 29-year-old defender.
It has been claimed Mustafi is one of the players on Juventus’ radar and they could move for the Arsenal defender should they fail to agree terms with Schalke for Howedes.
