Arsenal star and Germany international, Shkodran Mustafi, has sent Arsenal fans on social media on transfer overdrive after Gooners interpreted his latest post on his official account on Instagram as a hint that a transfer may be close for midfield star Leon Goretzka.
Mustafi, who was part of Germany’s Confederations Cup winning team including midfield genius Goretzka, posted a picture of the duo all smiles with the Cup, which many Arsenal fans have taken as a hint that the sensational 22-year-old midfield star could be heading to the Emirates this summer.
