Shkodran Mustafi has made his first Arsenal-related post on social media after nearly leaving the club in the final week of the transfer window.
The 25-year-old moved to the Emirates stadium from Valencia just over 12 months in a deal which made him the most expensive defender in Arsenal’s history.
However, after a forgettable debut campaign in an Arsenal shirt, Mustafi was reportedly seeking a move to Inter Milan which failed to happen in the last minute.
Some fans have criticised the Germany international for his attempt to depart the club while others have questioned Arsene Wenger’s decision to keep a player who does not appear to be fully committed.
But ahead of Saturday’s Premier League clash with Bournemouth, Mustafi has displayed his professionalism by encouraging his teammates.
