Arsenal might still sell Shkodran Mustafi this month even though Calum Chambers will miss the rest of the season with a knee injury.
With Calum Chambers now recovering from an ACL injury and facing up to nine months out, Rob Holding only returning from one and senior pair David Luiz and Sokratis hardly the most faith-inspiring pair, it had been rumoured Arsenal could well keep Mustafi this month as cover for Chambers.
An exclusive in the Sunday Mirror by Neil Moxley, however, claims the club could still sell him this month anyway.
I was asked recently to pick my Arsenal Banter XI of the decade and named Mustafi as one of the centrebacks so quite what benefit there is to keeping him, I’m not sure.
That being said, Arteta might be able to get more from the player Arsenal paid nearly £40m yet Gary Neville said he couldn’t give away during his brief stint as Valencia boss.
