Arsenal boss Wenger keen to deal in firefighter Flamini
The Mirror says his versatility may mean that defensive options such as Swansea's Ashley Williams and Micah Richards of Manchester City are put on the back-burner and the midfield and attack are made priorities.
Flamini has been hugely impressive in training and, after being released by Milan, could slot straight into the team in a variety of positions.
The fact he can play right-back would also mean Bacary Sagna could cover at centre-back.
