Mustafi to Arsenal news has apparently become the most laughable or dramatic transfer saga in world with various contradicting reports on the subject.
However, It seems Arsenal will finally be signing their prime target after a series of protracted talks between them and Valencia, withe recent reports now claiming, personal terms have been agreed between Arsenal and the player, who wants a move to Arsenal before the close of the window.

Last week, manager Arsene Wenger had claimed the Gunners are in negotiations with the Spanish outfit over a transfer for defender Shkodran Mustafi.
The Arsenal boss has been under intense pressure to sign new players, most importantly a defender, before the end of the transfer window and after seeing his side labour to a draw against Leicester on Saturday, Wenger has finally accepted he has to splash the cash before the transfer window deadline on August 31.
“Mustafi? We hope it will be done. We are struggling to find the players we need”, Wenger told French channel SFR Sport on Saturday.
“He is one of a number of players we are looking at. Negotiations are ongoing.”
Without the signing of a quality defender, Arsenal may not be able to compete for the title this season.
