The confirmation comes after intense speculation in recent days that a loan move to Serie A was on the cards. The fact that the 25 year old was benched for the Gunners’ 4-0 defeat to Liverpool on Sunday only increased talk that a switch was imminent but it seems as though Inter have not been able to come up with an offer that Arsenal are happy with.
