Arsenal planning swap deal for AC Milan defender

Ac Milan defender Philippe Mexes could be in line for a shock move to Arsenal, which could see Danish striker Nicklas Bendtner move in the opposite direction.

Sports newspaper Corriere dello sport claims the 2 clubs arrange a swap deal to suit both clubs.

New France boss Didier Deschamps has added to the rumour by hinting that Mexes’ future could lie away from Serie A, saying: “I know Philippe well and he is part of the wider France squad.

“What is happening to him? I don’t know if he will leave Milan, as there is a particular situation going on with his club.”

Wenger has been looking for a way to offload the striker who was on loan at Sunderland last season and with AC looking to replace the void left by Zlatan Ibrahimovic's departure, Bendtner could be an ideal replacement.
