Ivan Gazidis Arsenal

AC Milan are hopeful that Ivan Gazidis will leave his role at Arsenal in order to move to the San Siro, a report claims.

The Serie A giants reportedly want Gazidis to become part of a new look board and help oversee negotiations with UEFA over Financial Fair Play.

The Rossoneri were reinstated into the 2018-19 Europa League having been previously excluded due to FFP sanctions.

Milan also underwent a change of ownership in what was a chaotic summer off the field, with American hedge fund Elliott Management ceasing control after missed payments from previous owner Yonghong Li.

However, the new board is starting to take shape with Leonardo and Paolo Maldini back at the club, and according to The Guardian Milan are confident that Gazidis will join too.

Their report states that “contacts between the parties have been positive and Milan believe an agreement is close”, while the Gunners will try persuade him to stay.
