Arsenal could offload more players today before the European transfer deadline closes.

Shkodran Mustafi has been told he’s free to leave The Emirates, but so far the Germany defender is yet to find a suitor.

Roma’s £2.5m loan deal for Chris Smalling appears to have ended their interest in the Arsenal defender. However, Metro report that Juventus have turned their attention to the defender following Giorgio Chiellini’s ACL injury.

Mohamed Elneny sealed a loan switch to Besiktas over the weekend. Meanwhile, it was reported late last night that Henrikh Mkhitaryan is being lined up by Serie A side Roma, Calciomercato claim.
