Arsene Wenger has come closer to a sensational return to management with AC Milan.
Reports in France claim that Wenger – who has not had a job since leaving Arsenal at the end of last season – is replacing in advanced discussions with the Italian club Gennaro Gattuso.
Milan has made a good start to the season and is fourth in the Serie A table, but senior club officials demand more progress after more than £ 130 million in new recruitments during the summer.

According to France Football, leaders of the American investment fund Elliott Management Corporation – which now owns Milan – Paul and Gordon Singer are the linchpin of the switch to Wenger and have started negotiations a few weeks ago.
The billionaires of the father and the son are considered fans of Arsenal and would like Wenger to replace Gattuso at the helm.
To make the deal sweeter, Wenger also gained more control over the transfer department and could be confirmed as their new boss within the coming weeks.
If the move was to be upholstered, Wenger would be reunited with Ivan Gazidis, who left Arsenal in September to become the new president of Milan.
Wenger won three FA Cups during nine and a half years of working with Gazidis in Arsenal, although the 54-year-old would have played a major role in his decision to retire as manager in May. .
