Mesut Ozil spoke about Shkodran Mustafi in today’s Arsenal programme ahead of their clash against Chelsea this evening.
The German playmaker revealed that Mustafi asked him about the club before his big-money move from Valencia.
“He had a few questions for me, about the team, the manager and the city. We spoke about things and I was pleased that he eventually decided to move here.”
Asked how both Granit Xhaka and Mustafi have settled in following their arrivals this summer, Ozil said: “They’ve been fully integrated from the first day. They are guys who just get on with everyone and bring positive energy to the team.
“I’ve known Shkodran from the German national team and we spoke a lot about this club before his transfer.”
