Shkodran Mustafi will leave Arsenal by the summer after falling way down the squad pecking order, according to his agent.
Mustafi has been reduced to a bit-part role amid increased competition for places, with speculation over his future now swirling as he approaches the final few months of his current contract.
The 28-year-old's father and agent has now confirmed that his son will not be staying at the Emirates beyond June, and has even left the door open for a potential move before the January transfer window closes.
“The fact is, Shkodran will leave the club in the summer at the latest,” Kujtim Mustafi told Transfermarkt.
Mustafi Sr added: “I also read the rumors yesterday that Shkodran should terminate his contract.
"To clarify: There are currently no discussions about a contract termination."
Mustafi will be available for selection again for Arsenal when they take in a trip to St Mary's to face Southampton in the Premier League tonight.
Mustafi has taken in over 150 appearances across all competitions for Arsenal since moving to the Emirates Stadium from Valencia in 2016.
