One of Arsenal’s marquee signings last summer, Shkodran Mustafi has endured an indifferent first season in North London but the German World Cup winner has shown enough to suggest he can be an important player in the coming years.

Mustafi may end up being the long-term successor to Koscielny at the heart of Arsenal’s defence but his role in this three-man defence will be crucial and he’ll need to find more consistency than he has shown since his summer switch from Valencia.
