Italian giants Inter Milan are set to drop their interest in Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi.
The German international was heavily linked, in the just concluded summer window, with a switch to San Siro with some reports even claiming personal terms were agreed between the player and Inter.
The Nerazurri are now believed to be on the verge of dropping their interest in Mustafi as they have turned their attentions to Atletico Madrid’s Jose Gimenez after failing to land Mustafi towards the end of the summer transfer window.
According to reports in Italy, via The Daily Cannon , the Italian club would prioritize a move for Giminez over the Arsenal defender.
The defender who has been linked with a move to the Emirates in the past is sure to have lots of interest in his signature given he is in the last year of his contract.
The German international who only arrived at the Emirates last summer enjoyed a very promising debut campaign but was however believed to be interested in a move away North London. Wenger’s decision to hold on to Mustafi now seems a masterstroke with Inter set to end their pursuit of the defender.
News like this will sound like music to Gunners and Gooners alike as Wenger is set to face a difficult summer next year. Sanchez is set to depart on a free. Mesut Ozil, whose contract also comes to and end next summer, is no close to an extension while a host of first team players whose contracts expire in 2019 will be targeted by rivals.
