Arsenal ponder bid for AC Milan fullback Abate

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is eyeing AC Milan fullback Ignazio Abate.

The Daily Star Sunday says Wenger is tracking AC Milan defender Ignazio Abate and has the full-back pencilled in to replace Bacary Sagna if he leaves for PSG or Monaco.

Frenchman Sagna, 30, is in talks with the Gunners over a new deal but Arsenal rarely offer long-term contracts to players his age or older.

Milan want to keep Abate, 26, who has a year left on his deal but he fancies the Premier League.
