Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
Italian outfit Inter Milan have made a new offer for Germany and Arsenal star Shkodran Mustafi, with the Serie A giants anxious to take the player off the market this summer before the transfer window slams shut this Thursday, according to Sky Sports.
As reported by Sky Sports, Inter are placing an offer of £4.6M loan fee on the table for the German Mustafi, with an option to buy for £23m next summer, which could become an obligation to buy should the defender appear in 50% of the Italian side’s fixtures this season.
Sky Sports also believe that Arsenal and boss Arsene Wenger would like to hold on to Mustafi at the club beyond this summer, with the club expecting the player to stay as he is still a part of manager Arsene Wenger plans for this season.
Mustafi, who transferred to the north London club for £35M from La Liga side Valencia last summer report the Guardian, played 26 league games for the Gunners last season as his side missed out on Champions League football for the first time since Arsene Wenger joined the club 21 years ago.
Should Arsenal let Mustafi leave this late in the transfer window, it’ll be interesting to see who the Gunners decide to replace the German with as they look to turn their season around.
