In possibly one of the most annoying transfer rumours of the summer, Shkodran Mustafi may or may not be about to sign for Arsenal. Depending on who you believe.

The Valencia defender has been heavily linked with a move to north London with reports claiming that we’re edging closer, although if we edge any further surely we’ll be in the poor bloke’s lap?

The issue is, some reliable sources are claiming that we’re signing him and soon, while other reliable sources are saying we won’t.

Something that we found strange was the fact that, if the above is true, Valencia have allowed their player to talk to Arsenal before negotiating with us first. Although tapping up does happen, it’s not allowed, so you’d have to wonder how this could happen so publicly.

What’s more, according to Radio Taronja, Valencia have told them that the deal isn’t happening.

Then we have Sky Sports saying we’re signing Mustafi for £28m!

The Ornacle also reckons all systems are go, except we’re haggling over the price in order to hold back funds for a striker…
