AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has intimated that the Rossoneri have agreed to sign Arsenal midfielder Mathieu Flamini. The Frenchman is expected to pen a four-year contract with the Serie A club after enjoying his best ever season with the Gunners. Juventus had been linked with Flamini, but it now appears that Milan have won the race to clinch his signature, with Galliani saying after the victory against city rivals Internazionale: "Flamini is set to arrive tonight. He will sign a four-year deal." Earlier Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger had said: "Frankly, I don't know if Flamini will stay. But if you ask me was I overall super-confident, I would say no. "He has an offer on the table which is valid until tomorrow, then we will see. I am not confident, but also not worried. The situation is not in my hands. "We have done what we had to do, it is now down to him to make a decision. At some stage you have to make a decision and if he goes we have to look at our options. "We can't wait until July. You could lose players if they come on the market. My ideal solution is that he stays, so I am not happy if he goes - but we've done everything we can."
