Galatasaray set to loan Arsenal centre-back
The defensive department of the Galatasaray squad needs quality additions.
British source claim that Galatasaray are set to loan Arsenal centre-back Shkodran Mustafi.
The 27-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
Arsenal spent 41 million euros to sign the Germany international from Valencia in the summer of 2016. The 27-year-old has a valid contract with Arsenal until June 2021.
Mustafi has played 125 times for Arsenal since signing from Valencia, scoring 9 goals and creating 4 assists in that time.
As a member of Germany national football team, Mustafi won 20 caps and he scored two goals.
The 27-year-old is out of the picture at Arsenal, which has opened the door for a potential exit.
Fatih Terim is looking to shore up his defensive options and Arsenal’s Shkodran Mustafi happens to be a target. Terim is a known admirer of the player and is reportedly keen on the idea of bringing him this winter.
Shkodran Mustafi has the talent to play many roles in defense.
According to Tribalfootball, “Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi is attracting interest from Turkey this transfer window. Fotomac says Galatasaray are in talks with the agents of the Germany international about a move to Istanbul this month. Gala have also made contact with Arsenal about an initial loan deal For his part, Mustafi is eager to make the move after growing tired of the barracking from Arsenal fans this past year.”

If Galatasaray are genuinely interested, a deal would not be impossible to complete.
A move to Galatasaray is exactly what Shkodran Mustafi needs to reignite his career, and we hope he is able to do just that.
Signing the 27-year-old in the winter transfer window would be a masterstroke from Terim.
Galatasaray fans would certainly love to see him arrive at the club.
