Barcelona were linked with a move for Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi at the weekend and fans of the Catalans giants have been reacting on Twitter.
According to Spanish newspaper Sport, the 29-year-old on a shortlist compiled by boss Ronald Koeman as he sets about bolstering his defence.
Barcelona have struggled at the start of the 2020/21 campaign and currently occupy eighth place in La Liga.
Koeman won’t be able to spend astronomical amounts on players and clearly, he feels Mustafi is an affordable option.
The German World Cup winner is out of contract at Arsenal in the summer and could be allowed to move on during the January transfer window.
Gunners boss Mikel Arteta will be keen to add one or two more players to his ranks but may need to offload first.
Mustafi earns £90,000-a-week at the Emirates Stadium and has played 146 times during a four-year spell in London.
Interestingly, Barcelona fans have been discussing the potential for Mustafi to rock up at the Nou Camp.
The reaction seems mixed with some fancying him to do well, whilst others would prefer the club to go for another option.
Here is what Barcelona supporters are saying about the links to Arsenal player Mustafi.
ill take an injured umtiti over these guys😭😂

Mustafi is best suited to the Barca style. Plus he comes very cheap too. @FCBarcelona make that deal!!!!

Barca better not be considering that we need long term solutions not short term its better we continue with Pique Lenglet Umtiti and Araujo and get Eric Garcia for free or better still cut Todibo’s loan deal we can’t keep plugging holes

Mustafi shouldn’t be an option. He couldn’t make Arsenal starting 11 how do you expect him to take Barca to the next level? Rudiger, yes. He’s out of favor right now. Matip would’ve been most ideal but Liverpool injury crisis will never allow him to go now. Where is @samumtiti

The candidate already tells you the coach has no winning mentality. Mustafi?? Seriously?? After elections we will send Koeman where he belongs.
