Shkodran Mustafi has revealed the worst kept secret of the summer: he’s signed for Arsenal.
The Valencia centre-back tweeted hot on the heels of Arsenal’s official announcement, releasing a little video about how he can’t wait to wear the Gunners’ shirt and how proud he is. Aww.
The announcement wraps up a deal that looked as if it was on the cards for weeks. However, with the media involved, it was never straight forward and Valencia, at one point, even denied that the German was leaving.
Well, obviously he has left and he’s a Gunner.

Mustafi will be fantastic cover considering we have both Per Mertesacker and Gabriel out for a while through injury.
Glad to have you on board, Shkodran.
