AC Milan are planning a £14 million bid for Arsenal fullback Gael Clichy.

The People says Clichy is considered one of the best in the world in his position and Milan are desperate to lure him to Serie A.

With the legendary Paolo Maldini on the brink of hanging up his boots, manager Carlo Ancelotti wants to find his long term replacement.

The Italian giants know they need to add youth to their ageing team which makes Clichy, 23, a perfect target.
