Gunners boss giving little away on potential Flamini deal.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has not ruled out offering a contract to former midfielder Mathieu Flamini, according to the Daily Mirror.

The Gunners boss has also refused to confirm the deal, insisting that for the moment the Frenchman is simply training with the club to keep fit after being released by AC Milan earlier in the summer.

The 29-year-old spent five seasons at the San Siro after first leaving Arsenal in 2008, but he never truly found his best form with the Italian giants after impressing them whilst playing for Arsenal.

Wenger is in need of a new defensive midifelder after selling Alex Song to Barcelona last summer, as the likes of Mikel Arteta and Aaron Ramsey have not really adjusted to playing in a deeper role for the side.

Arsenal have been linked with moves for the likes of Geoffrey Kondogbia and Paul Pogba, but Wenger will be understandably tempted to go for the cheaper option in Flamini, with the other two players valued at close to £20million by their clubs.

The Gunners also missed out on a deal to sign Luiz Gustavo from Bayern Munich earlier in the summer, with the Brazilian opting for a move to Wolfsburg instead.
