Napoli, Lazio in talks with Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi

Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi is on the brink of returning to Italy.

The former Sampdoria stopper is in contact with Napoli and Lazio.

Calciomercato.com says Lazio have identified Mustafi as a priority for the centre of their defence, with Arsenal willing to sell for around £13million.

The report states that asking price could even drop to £11million.

Napoli are also interested in Mustafi, as well as his Arsenal team-mate Sokratis, as a potential replacement for Manchester City target Kalidou Koulibaly.

Mustafi is thought to earn around £4million per year in north London.

Lazio are reportedly willing to offer the 28-year-old a five-year deal worth £2.3million per season plus bonuses.
