Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi is on his way out of North London according to widespread reports in the Italian media.
The Gunners have strengthened adequately with the addition of two central defenders and that has left Mustafi to be surplus to requirements.
Arsenal signed Brazilian centre back Gabriel Magalhaes from LOSC Lille of France in a £25m deal earlier in the summer while young centre back William Saliba has returned to the club after a loan spell at Saint Etienne.

Frenchman Saliba was signed in a £25m deal last summer and was sent back to the French Ligue 1 team on loan for the whole of the last campaign as part of his transfer to Arsenal.
Shkodran Mustafi has a year to go on his Arsenal contract and the club is keen to sell him to avoid the potential of him leaving for free next summer.
Lazio are the team closing in on his signature as they have already agreed on personal terms with the German international according to Lazio Press.
The only thing left is for Lazio to find an agreement in bonuses with the player.
Lazio will play Champions League football this season and their top-four finish from the last Serie A campaign.
