Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang does now not appear too disenchanted about the potential of Arsenal selling Shkodran Mustafi, ‘liking’ a post on Instagram suggesting the defender may just sign up for Monaco.
The German World Cup winner arrived from Valencia in a £35million deal again in 2016 with a large recognition, even though his time on the Emirates has been plagued through a string of high-profile mistakes.
Incredibly, the defender used to be even booed through supporters when he got here on as an alternative choice to Calum Chambers in Arsenal’s defeat to Lyon within the Emirates Cup ultimate weekend.
But Arsenal lovers would possibly now not have to place up with Mustafi for for much longer, with French e-newsletter L’Equipe reporting that Ligue 1 facet Monaco have made an enquiry.
Despite the 27-year-old’s struggles since transferring to the Premier League, Arsenal are reported to have advised Monaco they would like €30m (£27m) for the error-prone defender.
And Aubameyang has now perceived to tease the potential of Mustafi leaving, ‘liking’ a post on Instagram relaying experiences that the German may just sign up for Monaco.
His possible departure may just depart Arsenal in a little of a dilemma, with skipper Laurent Koscielny having requested to go away the membership and new centre-back recruit William Saliba now not arriving till subsequent summer season..
If Mustafi remains at Arsenal, it could be one thing of a blow for Emery who had reportedly advised Gunners bosses to dump the defender after the Europa League ultimate defeat to Chelsea and reinvest within the defence.
But Arsenal have struggled to seek out any suitors in spite of apparently looking to offload him each and every window, and he’s glad to stay on the membership.
‘It is odd that there are always transfer speculations,’ he defined to Kicker previous this 12 months. ‘I am an Arsenal player and have a contract until 2021.’
