Any chance of the leopard changing its proverbial spots in the Arsenal defence looks pretty slim if a clip of Gunners training is anything to go by.
A six-second video of the players in action featured a pretty nifty piece of skill from academy player Tyreece John-Jules – and a characteristically rash challenge from Shkodran Mustafi.
Thankfully, the youngster’s quick feet saw him emerge unscathed from the flying German, whose desperate challenge did little to calm the nerves of any of these Arsenal fans looking ahead to seeing him in the first team next season.
Displaying a strong desire for the defender to be left as far away from the senior side as possible, plenty of fans seem desperate for the centre-back to be on his way during this transfer window – and by the looks of things, any price will do for some supporters.
As the Arsenal defence was plunged into further uncertainty with Laurent Koscielny’s refusal to play, the club may not even be in a position to give the fans their wish – but there seems to be no denying that the opinion amongst the fanbase is fairly one-sided:
He even thinks it’s a joke, Awful defender!

That’s an academy striker getting the better of him.

I will loose faith in Emery if Mustafi is a gunner by window close.

And some of our fans have audacity to say “sell Chambers” ??????????????

At this point I wouldn’t be looking for money I’d just release the guy.

I can’t cope. Not good enough for The Arsenal.

At this point he’s probably more likely to injure one of our attacking players then doing anything of note. We should pay Spurs to take him for this reason alone.
