Mikel Arteta has challenged Shkodran Mustafi to prove he still has a future at Arsenal.

Mustafi has fallen down the pecking order at Emirates Stadium and in the summer the defender was told by former head coach Unai Emery he could leave.

It looks like defensive reinforcements are at the top of Arsenal's wishlist during Mikel Arteta's first transfer window in charge.

Arteta, who took over at Arsenal last month, has vowed to give everyone a chance to prove their worth and said: “We haven’t talked about this (Mustafi’s future) internally, but I have known him since my time when I was at Everton.

Arsenal are currently light at left-back, with Kieran Tierney out until next month at least.

It means Arsenal have just four fit senior centre-backs — David Luiz, Rob Holding, Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Mustafi — and Arteta has admitted they cannot realistically allow someone to leave without replacing them.
