Mustafi set for Roma Loan

Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi is set to leave for Roma on loan before the Italian transfer window closes this weekend, with the Serie A side given the option to buy him permanently for £23 million.

Mustafi is out of favour at the Emirates, both with Unai Emery and his coaching staff, but also with the fans, who blame him for a series of high profile defensive errors last season, and for his tendency to commit himself unnecessarily in the tackle.

And with David Luiz signed on deadline day, Rob Holding making his way back from injury, and William Saliba waiting in the wings for next season, his first-team prospects in North London appear to be dwindling.

He was left out of Arsenal’s match day squads for both of their Premier League fixtures so far against Newcastle and Burnley.

Roma had been linked with a move for Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren, but were deterred by the £26 million fee the Anfield side were demanding.
