Although the Express claims that the Italian media are reporting Arsenals openness to a Mustafi departure to Inter Milan, SportWitness point out that it doesnt actually say anywhere in the Gazzetta dello Sport article that Arsenal are open to it.

Other than that, the strongest evidence we have that the German defender might leave the Gunners is that Arsne Wenger hasnt completely ruled it out, just saying that the final days of the window are always unpredictable. Sky Italia say that the player has agreed to a move to Inter but the clubs havent agreed a deal. Thats called tapping up.

But taking a look at the other side, it would certainly be a strange move by Arsenal to sell the most expensive defender in their history a year after they bought him without bringing in a replacement. All in the same window that Gabriel leaves for Valencia.

There hasnt even been anything particularly reliable confirming that Mustafi even wants to go. Hes spent years in England before, with Everton, and only left when he couldnt get into the team.

Shkodran has also just welcomed his first child into the world, so moving to a completely new city (Milan) would be pretty disruptive.

If he does want to go, Arsenal have less than a week to negotiate a decent fee and spend it on a replacement.

Crazier things have happened in the transfer market and at this football club, I guess
