Arsenal would only allow Inter Milan target Takehiro Tomiyasu to leave for a significant fee this summer.

This according to UK news outlet the Mirror, who report that the Gunners would not consider loaning the Japanese international out amid Nerazzurri interest.

Arsenal defender Tomiyasu looks to be a player who’s come onto Inter’s radar.

The 24-year-old former Bologna defender is reportedly a player the Nerazzurri are considering as a Milan Skriniar replacement.

The Japanese international’s versatility and Serie A experience could make him a logical target in this regard.

However, reports suggest that Inter moving for Tomiyasu would be contingent on Arsenal opening up to a loan offer.

And according to the Mirror, the Gunners are not.

Arsenal Don’t Want To Loan Out Inter Milan Target Takehiro Tomiyasu

The Mirror report that Arsenal would necessarily oppose the idea of offloading Tomiyas this summer.

However, it would have to be for a significant fee.

Last season’s Premier League runners-up have spent over €200 million in the transfer market so far this summer.

Therefore, one of the priorities for the Gunners is recouping some of that money back from sales.

Whilst Arsenal would consider cashing in on some members of what has become a somewhat bloated squad, doing so with loans away would be of little interest to them.

Therefore, the Nerazzurri may have to look elsewhere.

Inter have already done plenty of business this summer.

One thing that the Nerazzurri have not done, however, is secure a replacement for Skriniar.

Yann Bisseck has come in as a kind of defensive depth option. However, the German is not yet ready to be a regular starting-quality option, aged 22 and never having played regular football in a top five European league.

Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta seemed to be on the way.

But then the Spaniard decided to snub the Nerazzurri and join Atletico Madrid instead.
