ARSENAL star Shkodran Mustafi is closing in on a season-long loan switch to Italian giants Inter Milan.

The German defender only joined the Gunners last summer for £35m, but he has struggled to settle in England.

The 25-year-old was dropped to the bench on Sunday as Arsene Wenger’s men were humiliated 4-0 by Liverpool.

He has already agreed personal terms with Inter over a deal which will keep him there for the remainder of this campaign.
