£35M bid for Arsenal star being lined up by former European champions, loan offer for player rejected by club last week

Posted by

Inter Milan are said to be eyeing up a £35M move for Arsenal and Germany star Shkodran Mustafi, after reports emerged that the defender has failed to bond with his Gunners team-mates, according to the Daily Star.

The Daily Star are reporting that the north London club could be willing to sell Mustafi, 25, if the 2010 Champions League winners offer £35M for the centre-back, which is the same amount the Gunners paid Valencia last summer for the player, with Arsene Wenger’s side having already rejected a loan offer for the Germany international last week.

Mustafi, as per the Daily Star, was a first team regular for Arsenal last season, however despite his presence in the Gunners’ starting line-up, the former Valencia man has failed to bond with his team-mates, which has opened up a move for the player.

However any deal for Mustafi will rely on the Gunners have a replacement for the German lined-up beforehand, as the club have been left short at the back after Brazilian Gabriel completed his move to Valencia at the end of last week, report the Daily Star.

Should Arsenal end-up selling Mustafi, it’ll certainly be interesting to see who the north London side decide to go for as a replacement for the World Cup winning star.
