Arsenal reportedly agree to terminate Mustafi’s contract ahead of Schalke move


Arsenal FC have reportedly made an agreement with defender, Shkodran Mustafi, to terminate his current contract with the club.

The Germany international who joined Arsenal from Valencia in 2016 is set to return home to join Bundesliga outfit, Schalke, as a potential replacement for Liverpool bound Ozan Kabak.

Reports in England and Germany revealed that Schalke have agreed on a loan deal with Liverpool for the sale of Kabak as the Premier League giants aim to solve their defensive problems following injuries to Joe Gomes, Vigil Van Dijk and lately Fabinho.

Although the transfer is said to be half-way done as the player Kabak’s loan deal includes a buy option  and according to popular sports journalist Fabrizio Romano, “Schalke wanted an obligation clause but #LFC are confident to sign him with the ‘option’ paying a higher loan fee.”

Mustafi’s deal is possibly dependent on Liverpool’s acquisition of Schalke’s 20-year-old Turkish defence who is said to be pushing for the Anfield move.
