Arsenal in Talks to Sign Kurzawa From PSG

While the 27-year-old can play as a centre-back as well, he would hardly be a solution at the heart of the Arsenal defence, considering he does not necessarily excel in the role. I am quite harsh on myself as well when I make mistakes.

Mustafi felt that such a review was massively reinforced by social media.

"On there, it's hard to handle when things are going well and then when things are not working out it's even tougher", he said. "You don't agree with a lot of comments, so it makes it hard".

Even if he believes that the criticism directed against him has become too strong at times, Mustafi does not want to be seen as a scapegoat and believes that he and the association have to overcome common challenges.

According to the Express, Arsenal have now won the race for his signature, beating off competition from Inter Milan who had also expressed an interest in signing a player who plays primarily at left-back but can also operate centrally.

Speaking to the club's official website, the centre back confessed that what he has read online from Gunners supporters has affected him personally. "I don't think the world turns around me or that I'm the main point of the world", he added.

"But sometimes it was hard to understand, because even in some bad games that I wasn't involved in, I was the one to blame".

"It's so much easier when things are going well because when you're reading comments you don't like, you have to go out and play and you've got those comments in your head".

"We just need to stay united as a team, a club, with our fans".
