Arsenal fans can heave a sigh of relief after Sky Sports reported that their latest signing Shkodran Mustafi will be available for the visit of Southampton next weekend, despite an injury scare on international duty.

The Gunners are already dealing with injuries to club captain Per Mertesacker and Gabriel and had a mighty scare when Mustafi hurt his ankle during Germany’s 2-0 friendly win over Finland earlier this week, a game in which Germany legend Bastian Schweinsteiger ended his international career. Mustafi, who completed a £35 million move to the Gunners on Tuesday from Valencia,  was seen clutching the lower part of his leg early in the second half of that match.

Arsenal had a nightmare opener in the season when they conceded 4 times against Liverpool. The pressure to bolster the leaky defence compelled Arsene Wenger to buy the former Everton defender but things started to look bad for the North London club after the incident in the friendly.

There were concerns that the Germany international was set for a spell on the sidelines.But Sky Sports report Mustafi is expected to be available for Arsenal’s Premier League visit of Southampton on September 10.

The centre-back arrived at the Emirates Stadium along with striker Lucas Perez, who cost a reported £17m from Deportivo La Coruna.

Meanwhile, after going winless in the opening two games, Arsenal defeated Watford by 3-1 to get back to winning ways. And now that they have bolstered their team, they will be looking to hit the top gear.

    An avid sports lover, i always wanted to pursue a career in football. But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan. You will never walk alone.
