Mustafi's father claims 'two or more clubs' in for Valencia defender


Shkodran Mustafi's father and manager has revealed that "two or more" clubs are in for the Valencia defender and Goal understands that Liverpool have "absolutely no interest" in the German international.

The 24-year-old centre-back has been courted by Arsenal for several weeks and identified as the man to fill the defensive void left by injuries to Per Mertesacker and Gabriel Paulista.

Goal reported that Mustafi agreed personal terms with the Gunners last week but Arsenal's failure to thrash out a deal with Valencia has seen other clubs show an interest in him.

Mustafi's father and manager, Kujtim, told Goal that "very soon you will know about the future of Mustafi" and claimed that "'two or more clubs are in negotiations" with the player, while there is also interest from other unnamed European sides.

Arsenal have been desperate to sign an experienced centre-back since losing Mertesacker and Gabriel to injury, with Laurent Koscielny expected to return for the trip to Leicester City on Saturday.
