He is able to talk to foreign clubs from January and can even sign a pre-contract agreement for a free transfer.
The German defender, 28, has featured just twice for Arsenal in the Premier League this term.
And the arrival ofGabriel Magalhaes from Lille, with William Saliba also waiting in the wings, means Mustafi’s prospects have been even further reduced.
And his father Kutjim has now admitted Mustafi is open to all offers come January.
He told Sport 1: “Nothing is ruled out.
“We can imagine everything because Shkodran is a free transfer in the summer.”
Meanwhile, Mustafi has confirmed Arsenal are yet to initiate any kind of talk over extending his current deal.
The centre-back revealed: “When I made a decision to sign for Arsenal it is because I respect this club.
“It’s a huge club, that’s why for me if I could stay at Arsenal, of course it would mean a lot to me.
“When you hopefully get a few games, you can maybe look at the future but at the moment it has been difficult because in the last months I haven’t really been thinking about the end of my contract or what’s going on with the future because all I wanted was to be back as quick as possible.
“We haven’t been talking about anything so there isn’t anything I can tell you guys.
“Now it is important for me to just get a few games and get into the match rhythm and then see how it goes.”
