AC Milan are looking to sign Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi on a cut-price deal during this summer's transfer window.

The Germany international has less than 14 months remaining on his Gunners deal and the club have yet to discuss a possible contract extension.

As a result, there has been much speculation regarding his future and Todofichajes claims that the Rossoneri could seek to land his services for a bargain fee.

Mustafi was able to put in a number of standout displays after Mikel Arteta took charge of the Gunners in December but reports claim that the Spaniard is open to the prospect of selling the centre-back.

The 27-year-old was signed from Valencia for more than £35m four years ago but the Gunners are unlikely to receive a similar sum amid the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

Elsewhere, the defender is also approaching the final year of his contract and clubs may seek to take advantage of the situation. Milan are prepared to offer around £9m to land Mustafi's signature.
