Arsenal managing director Keith Edelman believes they can become the world's biggest club - if they win the Champions League this season.
"Milan is a tough draw but you expect that at this stage. It promises to be a fascinating encounter between their experience and our youth.
"While other clubs in England have gone down a route of foreign ownership to grow we have gone our own way and now feel in a very strong position.
"A lot is made of the number of foreign players we have but, as a club, we remain English. We have retained our soul. We haven't sold off the silver."
