Mustafi has agreed personal terms with Arsenal.

Valencia fans serenade Arsenal target Shkodran Mustafi

Published 4 Comments

It's fair to say Arsenal fans are beyond desperate for their club to sign Shkodran Mustafi.

That said, the Emirates faithful would probably just like Arsene Wenger to sign someone. Anyone, really.

Right now, though, it seems like the Mustafi move is actually going ahead.

The Gunners have agreed a £28million deal with his club, Valencia, and the defender - who is being brought in after skipper Per Mertesacker was ruled out for five months - has even agreed personal terms.

If there's just one thing that can scupper Wenger's plans now, it's the Valencia fans.

And here's how they plan to do it. Ahead of their pre-season friendly with Fiorentina, the La Liga side arranged their usual presentation day.

Sing for Mustafi 

Mustafi might not have been in the squad, a further indication of his imminent departure, but Valencia fans let him know how much they want him to stay by serenading him before the game, as per the Evening Standard.


Footballers and managers have been known to make all kinds of decisions based on the fans singing their name. Well, it even convinced Rafael Benitez it was a good idea to stay with Newcastle in the Championship, and that's not exactly going swimmingly.

In all likelihood, there's no going back here; Mustafi is on his way to Arsenal, but it'd just be their luck if he decided he couldn't part with his admirers in Valencia after all.

Who should Arsenal sign before the window closes? Have your say in the comments.
