Mustafi officially speaks out on Arsenal move – Announcement Tuesday, 5-year deal signed

Shkodran Mustafi

Shkodran Mustafi has given an exclusive interview to Sky in Germany in which he has confirmed that he has signed a 5-year contract with Arsenal.

In an interview with Sky Sports Germany reporter Marc Behrenbeck, Mustafi admitted he had signed his contract.

It is claimed his arrival will be announced on Tuesday due to the bank holiday weekend in the UK. Mustafi will join up his national team tomorrow after being included in the squad to face Finland next Wednesday and Norway four days later in their opening 2018 World Cup qualifier.

Here are few more tweets relating to the same.

Mustafi, who has featured 12 times for Germany, has played in England before, enjoying a brief stint at Everton. He did not make any first-team appearances for the side during his time there, eventually transferring to Sampdoria and then Valencia.

He is a tough tackler, filling in for Mats Hummels in one of Germany’s first games in the Euros. He has been often called a great overall central defender who is a quick first tackler, someone who could play well with a high-lying, mobile and ball playing partner such as Laurent Koscielny.

The Gunners are in need of someone who can help shield Petr Cech  against quick, counter-attacking teams in the premier league in the months to come. Per Mertesacker is injured till January, while Gabriel Paulista is at least 6 to 8 weeks away from complete recovery.

Arsenal are in serious trouble with central defenders, there is no doubt about that. Do you think Mustafi signing will solve the Gunners defensive issues?
