Mustafi remains with Gunners

After managing to the three senior players off their books in the run up to the European transfer window closing, Arsenal find themselves stuck, for the time being at least, with the one player that fans wanted to see the club more than any other, defender Shkodran Mustafi.

Mohamed Elneny joined Beşiktaş on loan, Nacho Monreal was sold to Real Sociedad for a nominal fee, and Henrikh Mkhitaryan secured a deadline day loan move to Roma, with the Italian side having an option to buy the Armenian next summer.

However, error-prone Mustafi remains at the club, despite manager Unai Emery making it clear that it would be better for the player if he found another club if he wanted to play first-team football.

Juventus were linked with a last-minute move for him as they looked for a replacement for the injured Giorgio Chellini, but their interest came too late in the day to get any deal done in time.
