Arsenal's French midfielder Mathieu Flamini is all set to join AC Milan after passing a regulation medical examination on Monday, the Italian press reported.
Flamini arrived in Rome from London late Sunday in time to have the medical tests the following morning.
He then headed to the club's Milanello training complex for further tests. Gazzetta dello Sport said he was set to put his name to a four-year contract later in the day.
The 24-year-old joined the Gunners from Marseille in 2004 and after being no more than a bit-part player for his first three seasons, he's become a fixture in the first team this season.
AC Milan number two Adriano Galliani meanwhile denied that Flamini was being brought in to replace Italian international midfielder Gennaro Gattuso who has given indications he would like to play in England.
Newly-crowned German champions Bayern Munich also had Gattuso watched on Sunday in the Milan derby against Inter, Gazzetta reported.
