Shkodran Mustafi has revealed why he joined Arsenal in the summer.
The centre-back says his Germany team mate and Arsenal star Mesut Ozil convinced him to join the Gunners.
Mutsafi, who signed from Valencia for £35 million, could make his debut this Saturday at home to Southampton.
“We were at the European Championships and we had time to speak,” said Mustafi.
“He told me about the club, about the team and the things that he told me made me come here.”
“I noticed that it’s a club where I can develop, where I can grow as a player,” added the 24-year-old.
“He said that he’s happy here, that the people are crazy for football and that it’s a team that enjoys playing football the way that he does, the way that I do.”
