Done Deal: Shkodran Mustafi joins Arsenal

Arsenal have completed the signing of Valencia defender Shkodran Mustafi for an undisclosed fee.

The Germany international has been linked with the north London outfit for a number of weeks now, although the deal puts on hold numerous occasions due to the negations between two clubs.

However, the move to the Emirates has now been completed, with the 24-year-old centre-back becoming Gunners’ third major summer recruit following the arrival of Granit Xhaka from Gladbach and Lucas Perez from Deportivo La Coruna.

“He is at the right age. He has good experience. He is a very focused player who can play with the ball as well. We have taken a great player but have prepared well for the future,” Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger told the club’s official website.

Mustafi and Perez should be available for Arsenal’s next Premier League encounter against Southampton on Sept. 10
