It is thought that the 27-year-old isn’t anywhere near manager Unai Emery’s plans this season after the Spaniard elected for a partnership of Calum Chambers and Sokratis during their Premier League opener against Newcastle United on Sunday.
Mustafi wasn’t even able to occupy a spot on the substitutes bench.
A couple of supporters labelled it as ‘lovely’ and ‘good’ whilst another claimed his exit would be just like a new signing.
One fan added that Emery was finally seeing the light with a further Gooner believing it was the best news all season.
Here’s the best of the reaction:
This is lovely news

There was no single mention of him after the Newcastle game even when Emery name-checked all his defenders. You just have to know the game is up.
