Arsenal centre-back Shkodran Mustafi will reportedly have transfer talks with Turkish side Galatasaray.

Currently valued at €15 million according to Transfermarkt, the 27-year-old defender hasn’t been a regular for the Gunners this campaign, making only ten matches across all competitions. He has managed to find the net once in a Europa League fixture versus Vitoria Guimaraes.

According to Turkish outlet Fotomac (as cited by the Daily Star), Shkodran Mustafi’s representative will fly to Istanbul to discuss a winter transfer with Galatasaray. The report also reports that Fatih Terim is looking for some defensive reinforcements and the German defender is someone the club are targeting.

The Turkish side are currently 7th in the Super Lig table with 27 points, ten behind guides Sivasspor. The club needs some defensive reinforcements now, and someone like Shkodran Mustafi who has played in the PL could be a useful signing for them.

The 27-year-old defender has fallen down the pecking order at Arsenal, and maybe a transfer to the Turkish giants could be best for him as he could find ample first-team opportunities there.
