Arsenal may intensify interest in Shkodran Mustafi – and player is keen

Deporte Valenciano claim that Arsenal’s interest in Shkodran Mustafi is set to intensify due to fact that their other target, former captain Thomas Vermaelen, is bound for AS Roma.

They say that Mustafi remains very keen on Arsenal, however the price that Valencia have quoted is more than Arsenal are necessarily willing to pay.

However, Roma’s swoop for Vermaelen could force the Gunners’ hand as their need for a defender grows more and more desperate.
