Inter Milan have made a new offer to Arsenal for German centre-back Shkodran Mustafi.

Sky in Italy say Inter are offering a £4.6m loan fee, with an option to buy for £23m which could become an obligation to buy.

Inter would have to pay the £23m fee for Mustafi if he played in 50 per cent of their games this season.

Arsenal signed Mustafi for £35m from Valencia last summer.
