Football predictions Arteta does not want to part with Mustafi in January
Manager Mikel Arteta does not want to part with Shkodran Mustafi during the January transfer window, although the German defender is rarely in the starting lineup. He is also in the last six months of his contract. After assigning William Saliba to Nice and confirming that Socrates Papastathopoulos was about to leave, Arteta was left with limited options at the heart of the defense.
`For now, his future is here. Papa (Papastathopoulos) will probably leave us in January, and William has already done so and we do not have many options left. Gabriel is absent for a while and David Lewis is also injuredso it will be different for him in the coming weeks `. Mustafi missed the start of the season due to a sprain and although he has played several times in various tournaments, he has only three Premier League games. Rob Holding and Pablo Marie are starters in the center of defense at the moment, but Arteta believes that Mustafi can be their competition. `He was close to the starting lineup in several games, but so far we have found a pair of central defenders who bring us dry nets. This is sometimes very difficult to change, but not impossible, ` said Arteta.
