Arsenal have been extremely busy throughout the summer and Unai Emery’s work in the market is expected to continue right up until next week’s transfer deadline.

The Gunners are tipped to see a number of departures before the window slams shut on August 9th, with Arsenal having spent their £70m budget and needing to sell if Emery is to land any further signings.

Defensive changes have been on the cards at the Emirates Stadium following the signing of Sokratis Papastahopoulos, which has raised questions on the future of Germany international Shkodran Mustafi.

Turkish outlet Fanatik states that Galatasaray have seen a loan offer for Mustafi rejected by Arsenal, who are demanding £22.3m for the former Valencia man and are only willing to approve a departure on a permanent basis.

Mustafi faces a fight to earn regular first-team action next season due to competition with Sokratis, Calum Chambers, Rob Holding and Konstantinos Mavropanos, as well as Laurent Koscielny when he returns from an injury absence.
