After being linked with an exit in the summer transfer window, Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi has revealed that he is open to a move to the Bundesliga.
Unai Emery had publicly asked Mustafi to find new challenges, "We have some players and they know their situation. For example, Elneny and Mustafi, they know their situation in the squad." A transfer failed to materialise so the German defender, who has two years left on his contract in north London stayed put.
In an interview with the Sport Bild, Mustafi revealed that he is open to a move to Germany, "My father, who is my agent, spoke to the club. I am an Arsenal player and still have two years left on my contract. I‘ve never been someone who begins a war when something doesn‘t work out. I always said: If it is possible, I am open to take the next step. If not, I keep playing my football.
"The manager [Emery] said he sees me the same way he sees every player in the team. That‘s why I played today and that‘s it. We are going to see what the future holds. I won‘t say, that it isn‘t a thing but I am always what makes sense for me. I got a wife and two kids, so they have to agree as well. When a German club shows interest and it suits me, then I am open for it."
