When Sokaratis was injured against Manchester United, Arsenal fans weren’t sure if they were more worried he was going off or Shkodran Mustafi was coming on so they will no doubt be relieved to hear that Juventus are considering purchasing the German.

Shkodran Mustafi has done many things since he arrived at Arsenal but coming close to living up to his monster price tag is not one of them.

Rash, careless and inattentive, Arsenal found themselves a goal down within 10 minutes of him coming on to the pitch on Friday night and never looked like they would have enough to keep United out for the rest of the game.

It is then surprising to read that Juventus are interested in the player, but perhaps he is better suited to Serie A. He certainly doesn’t seem suited to the Premier League.

Although he is capable of impressive moments, they are too few and far between while his mistakes are not.

Calciomercato report that Juve are considering a move for Mustafi as a replacement for Medhi Benatia whom they could lose in this window or during the summer. A player, funnily enough, who has been linked with a move to Arsenal.

The Italian site writes that the German ‘would be of great interest for the Juve management’.

Hopefully, this is true or, at the very least, he’s of interest to someone, somewhere.
