Shkodran Mustafi Close To Inter Milan: Arsenal Negotiating Small Loan Fee And Buy Clause
The German defender has failed to settle in at the North London club since arriving last summer.
Arsene Wenger splurged £35m to rope in the centre-back from Valencia.
But according to reports, Mustafi is now set to join Inter on loan before Thursday’s deadline day.
Mustafi was dropped to the bench as Arsenal a suffered humiliating 4-0 loss to Liverpool on Sunday.
And Inter are on the verge of offering him an escape route, according to The Sun.
Arsenal want to recover the £35m they paid Valencia to land the German international last summer.
But as of now, the Gunners are ready to let him leave on a season-long loan deal.
The Gunners chiefs are currently negotiating a loan fee and are eyeing to include a clause which will force Inter to buy the defender next summer.
Mustafi has already agreed personal terms with the Serie A club and Inter will pay all of his £90,000-a-week wages.
There is a high possibility that Arsenal could even the German defender before Thursday’s deadline if Inter pay between £25m and £30m.
However, according to reports, a loan move seems to be the most likely outcome.
