Mustafi's father rules out Arsenal exit for Inter on deadline day

The Germany international has been linked with a late move to the Serie A side, but his father is not expecting a busy day before the window closes

Shkodran Mustafi will not be leaving Arsenal for Inter on the final day of the transfer window, his father has confirmed.

The centre-back had been linked with a late move to the Serie A side just a year after he joined the Gunners from Valencia for around £35 million.

The 25-year-old had talks with the San Siro outfit over a season-long loan, but his father and agent, Kujtim Mustafi, seems there is no chance of a move materialising by the time the period closes on Thursday. 

"I'm his agent and I'm sitting here relaxing at home," told "Nothing will happen today."

Mustafi is still contracted to Arsenal until 2021 but has featured just once in the four competitive games they have played this season - a 1-0 defeat to Stoke City.

Arsene Wenger has already seen Wojciech Szczesny, Kieran Gibss and Gabriel Paulista leave this summer, while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is set to join Liverpool for £35m.

There is still uncertainty around Alexis Sanchez's future, as the club rejected a £50m offer from Manchester City for the Chile international, but another bid worth around £70m could be made.

Meanwhile, Alexandre Lacazette and Sead Kolasinac have been brought in from Lyon and Schalke respectively.
