AC Milan Ready to Bid Gunners' Ex-Skipper

Italian giants AC Milan are offering bad boy William Gallas a £4million escape route out of his Arsenal hell.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger would be ready to offload him this month - as long as he can get a replacement.

Juventus are also on standby but AC Milan have come in because they are desperate for a new defender as veteran centre-half Alessandro Nesta has been plagued by injuries this season.

Gallas is aware of the Italian interest and has admitted he nearly joined AC Milan in the past and playing in Serie A appeals to him.

It has left Wenger with a major dilemma over the 31-year-old who is still being given the cold shoulder over his outspoken attack on his team-mates this season which has torn the dressing room apart.

Wenger has publicly insisted Gallas still has a future at the club despite stripping him of the captaincy following his outburst.

But privately he has never forgiven him and has rarely spoken to him in the past six weeks apart from giving him instructions with the rest of the team.
