Arsenal are in talks to sign Valencia centre-back Shkodran Mustafi, according to Sky Germany via Sky Sports.

The Gunners have yet to submit a bid for the German defender, but reports claim he could be available for a fee of around £25.3million plus add-ons, which could total to a further £8.4million.

Mustafi has a minimum fee release clause of £42.1million in his Valencia contract, but Los Ches are unlikely to demand close to that fee for the defender because quite simply they need a cash injection following a poor campaign in La Liga.
