Serie A side Milan are said to be growing increasingly confident that Ivan Gazidis will join the club in ‘the coming weeks’ from Arsenal.

According to a report from The Guardian, a deal is now believed to be closer than ever, despite previous claims that suggested a move was considered to be off.

The Arsenal’s chief executive is now expected to make the move to the San Siro to perform the same role under the new-look Milan outfit.

Gazidis has been heavily linked with a move to Italy following the takeover at the club.

The Elliott group have been keen to the bring in Gazidis and have been stepping up their interest in recent weeks, with an offer of around €4 million a year on offer for the Arsenal chief.

The Gunners are now set to put a fight to keep him at the club, but a move is looking increasingly likely.
