Arsenal targeted German to replace Mustafi

Arsenal targeted German to replace Mustafi”

Howedes made 334 appearances across ten seasons at Schalke but was stripped of his captaincy ahead of the 2017/18 and the 29-year-old Germany global was keen to leave the club.

Howedes' agent Volker Struth claims the World Cup victor had been lined up by Arsenal as a potential replacement for compatriot Shkodran Mustafi.

Per James Olley in the Evening Standard, it was widely reported Arsenal wanted rid of centre-back Mustafi in the summer and Inter were keen to sign him, but the move never materialised. Howedes and his agent looked towards the exit, and he ended up with a brilliant move to Juventus.

"When this new situation came up we had direct contact with [Juve sporting director Fabio] Paratici", Volker Struth explained.

"We also were in touch with other clubs, such as Roma, Leicester and Arsenal because we knew Inter wanted Mustafi".

"However, it soon became clear that Juve's interest was concrete and from the start they were Benni's first choice". That was Benni's favourite from the very beginning.

'Even if Schalke would have done a great job, you want to go to a club like Juve if the chance is there. "Juventus are the jackpot".

Howedes is yet to make his competitive debut for Juventus and missed their 3-0 Champions League defeat at Barcelona last night.
