Flamini has agreed terms with Arsenal and is set to sign a new contract believed to be for 2 years according to sky sports. The former Ac Milan player had played for Arsenal for 3 years before leaving on a free transfer in 2009. He has been training with Arsenal for the last 2 months. Darren Dein David Dein’s son who is the agent of Flamini had reportedly met Arsenal 3 days ago to agree a deal with Arsenal.
Arsenal are looking for a new defensive midfielder and have had bids rejected for Newcastle United’s Yohan Cabaye and Juve’s Paul Pogba. If the reports are true and Flamini joins Arsenal, it will be the third time he is joining a club on a free transfer. He left Olympic Marsheille to join Arsenal the first time on a free transfer, left Arsenal in 2009 for AC Milan on a free transfer and he is set to rejoin Arsenal on a free transfer as well.
However, it is not only Arsenal that is interested in the player and until the deal is 100% done, anything can still happen. West Ham and Fulham are interested but are adamant to paying his 75,000-a-week wage. Ac Milan are also said to be interested in resigning the player should he be willing to lower his wage demands.
