According to Chris Wheatley of Football London, Shkodran Mustafi is set to become the latest Arsenal player to terminate his contract before completing a move to Schalke

The news comes with Mustafi struggling for game time at the Emirates and Schalke seemingly in need of a central defender as Ozan Kabak reportedly nears a move to Liverpool.

Much-Needed Addition of Experience for Schalke

With Schalke sitting rock bottom and nine points adrift of safety in the Bundesliga, experience is needed if they want to guide themselves to safety; something Mustafi can offer.

The Arsenal man is a World Cup winner and has featured on the biggest stages of world football. He may not be at the peak of his powers, but with Kabak’s exit looking increasingly likely, Schalke had no choice but to act.

Mustafi’s arrival could signal a much-needed upturn in form as the Bundesliga side look to complete the impossible by surviving the drop. Mustafi will certainly sure up a rather chaotic backline should the deal happen. 

Instant Replacement for Kabak

With Ozan Kabak reportedly nearing a move to Liverpool, Mustafi provides Schalke with the perfect replacement. The German ticks all the boxes with experience in abundance for the price of nothing should the deal happen.

The deal would suit all parties involved if reports are to be believed.
