Former midfielder makes return to London.
Arsenal have finally made their long awaited second signing of the summer by bringing in midfielder Mathieu Flamini on a free transfer, the Daily Mail reports.
The France international left the club in 2008 to go and join Italian giants AC Milan, but he was released by them at the end of last season.
Flamini is believed to have agreed a three-year deal worth £40,000-a-week, turning down an extended stay at the San Siro in the process.
It had been well known that he had returned to the club earlier in the summer to train with the Gunners in order to keep his fitness up, something that Arsene Wenger was quick to point out when asked if there was any possibility of him returning to the side.
“He is just here to work on his fitness and he does that very well,’ said Wenger. ‘I don’t say there’s no chance and I don’t say there is a chance [of signing him].”
Flamini originally joined Arsenal in 2004 and went on to make over 100 appearances for the Gunners over a four year spell before heading to Milan on a free transfer.
He becomes the fourth player to re-sign for Wenger during the Frenchman’s tenure at the club with Sol Campbell, Jens Lehmann and Thierry Henry also returning for second spells with the Gunners.
