Shkodran Mustafi has agreed to leave Arsenal for Inter, according to Sky in Italy.
Inter want to take Mustafi on loan with a view to a permanent move, just 12 months after Arsenal paid £35m to sign him from Valencia.
And while the clubs have not agreed a deal, Sky in Italy say the Germany centre-half is prepared to return to Serie A, where he previously had a two-year spell with Sampdoria.
Arsene Wenger was non-committal when asked about Mustafi's future at his Thursday press conference, saying: "It's very difficult for me to talk about individual cases."
The Gunners boss has already sanctioned the sale of one centre-half this month, allowing Gabriel to join Valencia.
Laurent Koscielny, Per Mertesacker, Rob Holding and Calum Chambers are Arsenal's other recognised central defenders, although Wenger used left-backs Nacho Monreal and Sead Kolasinac there in the defeat at Stoke.
