Mustafi secured three interceptions and won three aerial duels in Wednesday's 6-0 win over Ludogorets in the Champions League.

The Gunners were comprehensive winners, and while the opposition deployed some tricky attackers, Mustafi was there to snuff out any semblance of an attacking move they were able to piece together. He has been a key member of a back line that has kept four clean sheets in the last five matches and should be in the lineup Saturday versus Middlesbrough in league play.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Mustafi won six tackles, made two interceptions and put in three crosses during his Man of the Match performance Sunday's 1-0 victory over Burnley.

Mustafi was a rock at the back, helping the Gunners preserve their third straight clean sheet, and he even ventured forward to help out the offense as they searched for the breakthrough goal in the second half. His addition has vaulted the defensive unit into one of the stingiest in the league, as he has been breached just three times in six matches for his new club. A matchup versus Swansea awaits on Oct. 15, after the international break.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Mustafi attempted two shots, won four tackles and made three interceptions during Wednesday's 2-0 win over FC Basel.

Mustafi was Arsenal's most impactful player defensively, helping keep the second clean sheet in four days. He has formed a solid partnership with Laurent Koscielny and has allowed just three goals in his five matches since arriving in London. Next up is a fixture with Burnley on Sunday.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Mustafi attempted two shots, won three tackles and secured an impressive six interceptions during Saturday's 3-0 win over Chelsea.

Mustafi was a rock at the back as his put the clamps down after gaining an early lead, and he made his presence felt at the offensive end as he directed a couple of set-pieces goalward. Mustafi has integrated seamlessly into the Arsenal squad, as they have allowed just three goals in the four matches he has played, and he will likely be in the first XI once again for Wednesday's Champions League fixture with FC Basel.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Mustafi officially joined Arsenal after transferring from Valencia for a fee of approximately 35 million on Tuesday, ESPN FC reports.

There had been many conflicting reports as to whether or not Mustafi would be on the move this summer, and Tuesday's official announcement finally brought the saga to a close. He will add quality to a thin Arsenal center back corps that saw youngster Rob Holding start each of the first three Premier League matches, and he should be a mainstay in the starting lineup at least until Per Mertesacker returns from his extended absence later this season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Valencia manager Pako Ayestaran said that Mustafi would not be sold during the current transfer window, reports Sky Sports.

Reports that the defender had agreed to move to Arsenal recently picked up steam with the London side negotiating a transfer fee. Mustafi's contract includes a 43.1 million buyout clause that may be a stumbling block for the deal, though. Mustafi was a second-half substitute for Valencia's first match of the season against Las Palmas.

Mustafi is on the bench for Monday's opener versus Las Palmas.

Amidst heavy transfer negotiations between Arsenal and Valencia Mustafi has been left out of the starting line-up for the opener versus Las Palmas. The coveted center back was considered to be certain for Arsenal move. However, negotiations have stalled and with his future in limbo he's been spared for clearer days.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Mustafi made two appearances (one start) for Germany during Euro 2016, scoring his first international goal on two shots (one on target) and adding one clean sheets, three tackles and three fouls to improve his record to 12 caps. Germany were knocked out in the semifinals after a 2-0 defeat by France.

Mustafi was one of the few solid pieces in a ground-shifting campaign for Valencia last season. The 24-year-old center back, though, wasn't much of a fantasy factor with Valencia's overall poor performance not allowing him to take advantage on his form. He finished the season with two goals, six clean sheets, 80 tackles and 14 yellow cards in 30 La Liga starts.
