And with the German’s antics last year – and the transfer window being open – you could be forgiven for thinking that the centre-back could be sold before the new season kicks off.
But so it proved, and after it emerged they could not finance a move for the defender due to FFP, Gunners supporters expressed their discontent at the development, urging Fenerbahce to reconsider their stance – with some fans offering to pay in order to offload the centre-back.
Judging by some of the part-exchange deals on offer from Arsenal supporters, it is clear that these fans really don’t rate Mustafi at all, with the former Valencia man being offered for everything from a pitiful £2 – to a Mars bar and a bottle of Coke.
I am willing to start a gofundme page to cover the additional cost ????

They must be in dire straits if they can’t afford to meet his value of about 6 quid
