Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi could leave the Gunners in the upcoming transfer window if reports coming out of the Italian media are anything to go by.
Mustafi is said to be attracting interest from one of the big clubs in Italy while his Arsenal future is far from being assured.
Arsenal could sell him in the summer to raise funds for new players ahead of next season.
The Gunners have identified areas like left-back, right-wing, centre back for strengthening and they might need to raise funds with just £45m available for new players.
The potential sale of players like Mustafi could hold the key for Arsenal in their bid to sign quality players to boost the team.
According to the publication from Tuttosport, AC Milan CEO (Chief Executive Officer) Ivan Gazidis is interested in signing the aforementioned Mustafi.
It was revealed that he wants to take Mustafi to AC Milan.
Gazidis was the CEO at Arsenal when they splashed the huge sum of £35m on his transfer from Spanish La Liga club Valencia.
Shkrodan Mustafi had a fantastic start to his Arsenal career in 2016 but he has not been able to sustain it.
He’s also a World Cup winner after playing his part in the German triumph at the 2014 edition in Brazil.
The Real Reaso Granit Xhaka Could Join AC Milan In January Revealed
Former Arsenal striker Granit Xhaka could leave the club for Italy when the winter transfer window reopens in a few weeks’ time as it looks like the Swiss international star is keen to leave the North Londoners after his clash with fans last month.
Granit Xhaka has not played the last four Arsenal games in all competitions since his foul-mouthed rant towards the Arsenal fans during the league game with Crystal Palace in the London Derby clash played at the Emirates Stadium.
Swiss media outlet RSI claimed that Granit Xhaka has been spotted househunting in Milan and that has fuelled the possibility of a move to seven-time European champions AC Milan.

He has earlier been linked with Inter Milan in the summer though it seems the latest news is about AC Milan whose chief executive Ivan Gazidis was on the payroll at Arsenal before he moved to Italy.
Granit Xhaka was dropped as the Arsenal captain earlier this month by manager Unai Emery due to his misdemeanor last month during the league game with Crystal Palace at the Emirates Stadium.
He reacted to chorus of jeers and boos from fans during the game while being substituted and that has led to his no-show at the club.
Arsenal, Chelsea Target Closing In On Wolves Move

It was revealed that the earlier reports claimed that the Midlands club had agreed on a move for the Ivorian international star since the summer but that is wide off the mark.

Franck Kessie had previously been linked with the London duo of Arsenal and Chelsea.
The Ivorian midfielder was a transfer target for the two London clubs in the summer though the Blues were unable to make any transfer due to the FIFA ban.
Chelsea were handed a transfer ban for two windows after they were deemed to have breached rules about signing players under the age of 18 by world football’s governing body FIFA.
The West Londoners appealed to FIFA over the ruling but their appeal was thrown out thereby prompting them to take the case to the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) with the ruling expected later this month.
