"There were talks with AS Roma, Leicester City and Arsenal in London because we heard here that Mustafi was courted by Inter Milan", Struth told German outlet Sportbild.

Struth admits Juventus showed an interest in the Germany global five years ago, but a move failed to materialise.

"With all due respect for Schalke, when a top club like Juve comes in you have to go there".

Howedes completed 86% pass accuracy rate last season. Howedes and his agent looked towards the exit, and he ended up with a brilliant move to Juventus.

Howedes had spent his entire professional career with the Royal Blues, making more than 300 appearances in all competitions for the club since his 2007 debut.
