“He will find it easy to adapt to the club,” he told Arsenal Player. “He has already lived abroad, he speaks the language and he knows Mesut Ozil.
“All those elements will lessen the impact of changing environments. Luckily for him, he will feel at home from the very first day.
“Mustafi is a player I like. He is experienced and really tough to beat, which makes him very suitable for the Premier League’s style.
“We really needed to bring a centre back to the club considering Per Mertesacker and Gabriel’s injuries, as well as Calum Chambers’ departure on loan.
“I hope he feels happy here from the very beginning so he can do for us what he does best.”
