Shkodran Mustafi has agreed to leave Arsenal for Inter Milan, according to reports.
The German centre-back joined the Gunners just last summer for a fee of £35m, but according to Sky Sports Mustafi has already agreed to leave for Italy and Inter Milan.
Arsenal and Inter haven’t agreed a deal, so a transfer still isn’t imminent, but if the rumours are true, Shkodran is ready to leave the Gunners.
Earlier in the week Wenger was asked about the future of Mustafi and simply responded that he didn’t want to talk about individual cases, which only amplified the speculation.
The World Cup winner made 37 appearances for the Gunners in his first season with the club, scoring two goals and providing two assists. He also picked up a large number of bookings, with 12 in all, although he avoided any second yellows or suspensions.
Having played with the German team at the Confederations Cup earlier in the summer, Mustafi returned to Arsenal late after his extended holiday, but started as the Gunners lost 1-0 to Stoke last weekend.
Mustafi wasn’t selected for the German squad for the World Cup qualifiers, which will take place at the start of September, and this has also increased speculation around what is going on with the defender right now.
If Arsenal want to hang onto Shkodran, he does have a long contract and his wife has just given birth to their first child, both of which would suggest he is less likely to force a move.
