Inter Milan are willing to pay a €5m fee in order to sign Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi on a season long loan, according to Mediaset Premium (via Tuttomercatoweb).

The Serie A side are also prepared to include an obligation to purchase the player at the end of the season for €30m (£27.9m). The Gunners are however reportedly holding out for a total of €40m (£37.16m) in order to make a small profit on the £35m they paid Valencia for the German international last summer.

La Gazzetta Dello Sport say that Inter are still considering other targets to Mustafi including Manchester City’s Eliaquim Mangala, Bayer Leverkusen’s Aleksandar Dragovic, Dynamo Kiev’s Domagoj Vida and Genoa defender Armando Izzo.

The Italian club still seem to be confident of signing Mustafi, the Italian publication reports, as they are willing to sell Andrea Ranocchia to a Premier League club despite currently only having two other senior centre backs in the squad.
