Arsenal will sell Mustafi to fund a move for one of a Bundesliga trio of defensive targets, according to Dailystar.

The 26-year-old center back endured a poor campaign at Arsenal last season which saw the club fail to qualify for European Champions League for the second season straight under former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, which coincidentally is the exact period of time the Germany International has been at the Emirates.

The Gunners transfer unit are working on a limited transfer budget this summer after two records signing of Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang last term.

The club is in need of funds to sign more needed players to enable a squad good enough to challenge for trophies next season.

Unai Emery’s defensive targets have been identified as Caglar Soyuncu, Benjamin Pavard and Abdou Diallo, with Sokratis Papastathopoulos already expected to sign from Borussia Dortmund for around £16 million.

Arsenal are keen to strengthen their defense with Bundesliga’s highly rated defenders. Funds gotten from a successful transfer of £35 million center back Mustafi will go a long way in ensuring Arsenal pens the signature of at least one of the defenders.

Arsenal have made efforts in the transfer market to further strengthen their defense since the arrival of new manager Unai Emery this summer. Let’s see if The Gunners will emerge successful with one of the three targets.
