It was being reported late yesterday evening that Inter Milan had returned with a new offer for Arsenal centre half Shkodran Mustafi.

Mustafi seems to be a hot topic in speculation this summer and it’s not the first time he’d been linked with a move away, it’s also not the first time Serie A side Inter Milan have been linked with him.

Sky Sports’ colleagues in Italy were reporting last night that Inter had returned with an improved £4.6million loan fee deal, but with the option to buy permanently for £23million next summer, after their first offer was rebuffed.

Sky suggested it would become an obligated permanent option as soon as Mustafi played in 50% of their matches this season.

Arsenal did purchase him from Valencia last summer for a fee of £35million apparently, so the deal still doesn’t see us break even on our outlay and Sky also say their sources suggested Arsene Wenger is keen to keep the 25 year old centre half as he remains in his plans, despite only featuring in the defeat to Stoke City so far in the Premier League.

If true, and not making a profit, you would expect this to again be rejected.
