Confirmed By SkySports – Arsenal Suffer Setback As Star Jets Off To Italy For Medicals

According to reports from Sky Sports, Inter is in the market for a central defender as they continue to look for players who can improve their squad play and London is where they are looking. With Murillo off to Valencia and Ranocchia returning to England, the club will be in need of substitutes for the Skriniar-Miranda duo, and Arsenal’s Shkrodan Mustafi has reportedly caught the attention of the Nerazzurri. Inter was previously eyeing a move for Manchester City’s Mangala, but the club has notnyet released the player’s loan availability, and this made the Nerazzurri extend their search to another Premier League club.

CONTACT WITH MUSTAFI – According to Sky, in recent hours, Inter made contact with Mustafi. The former Sampdoria defender’s contract with the Gunners is still valid till 2021, following a move from Valencia last year for 41 million EUR. He has failed to impress during his time in England, but Wenger continues to believe the 25-year-old German still has something to offer. We will wait to see how the situation pans out for Inter in the coming days, as they continue their search for an available defender.
