Mustafi has refused to rule out an Arsenal stay after revealing he has endured a difficult season so far.

Mustafi is still open to remaining at Arsenal after enduring a tough season so far.

Under former boss Unai Emery, the German was subject to lots of criticism and was even told he could leave the club by the Spaniard.

Easily one of the most criticized Arsenal players, the German recently revealed he was hurt by the occasional slander but wants to remain focused at the club.

And now, Mustafi has been part of a Gunners back line that has seen three consecutive clean-sheets.

The 27-year-old is not getting carried away and has said he isn’t bothered about his future.

Asked if he saw his future at Arsenal, he replied via Football365: “Why not? I have always taken things day to day.

“We had a game on Thursday, we have the next important game at the weekend and as long as I am playing for a club – it doesn’t matter which one – I play now for Arsenal and played before for previous ones.

“I always gave everything until the last minute and when I decide or when the club and I decide it is going to continue I am happy to continue, if not then we have to go forward.”

Mustafi is usually the scapegoat in wake of a defeat but is now earning raves and plaudits among the Arsenal fan-base.
