Shkodran Mustafi has become something of an outcast at Arsenal and his time with the gunners seems to be coming to an end with Galatasaray very close to a move. The 27-year-old came to the English club in the summer of 2016 for a fee of around £ 35 million. He was one of the expensive acquisitions by Arsenal in recent times. After featuring heavily in the first three campaigns with the Gunners,Mustafi has been frozen out of first-team action.

This was the case under Unai Emery and things were expected to improve following the sacking of the Spaniard in November. This has not been the case, as even Mikel Arteta has preferred using the 27-year-old since being appointed as the new Arsenal boss in December.

Despite this, it appears that he is not in the plans of the Istanbul giants next term and that could be primarily due to the financial impact of missing out on Champions football. Galatasaray had won back-to-back titles under manager Fatih Terim, but last season was a huge disappointment as they finished a lowly sixth in the standings.

However, he had been unable to make a major impact in all these clubs, but Stoke City was quite different since he was a big fish in a small pond. After impressing at the Britannia stadium, Shaqiri made the move to Liverpool in July 2018 for around £ 13.5 million.
