Shkodran Mustafi is asking Arsenal to terminate his contract as early as the January transfer window.
The Albanian defender has entered the last year of his contract with the Gunners, a contract which expires in the summer of this year.
But English media have reported that the player and his agent are in talks with the London club to find a common language to terminate the contract now.
The 28-year-old seems to have decided to return to the elite of German football Bundesliga.
German media have reported that the Albanian defender is in talks with two German teams, Eintracht Frankfurt and Hertha Berlin.
In case he leaves in January as a free agent, Mustafi will join one of these two teams.
But if Arsenal do not allow his departure, then the Albanian in the summer will leave as a free agent.
According to the German media, the player only prefers to return to Germany close to his family and will not consider offers from other leagues only from the Bundesliga.
Thus Hertha Berlin and Eintracht Frankfurt remain the two favorite teams to sign with the defender. / Telegraphy /
