Former Arsenal midfielder Mathieu Flamini has hinted that he could return to the club, five years after he moved to AC Milan.
The Daily Star have reported that the 29 year old has rejected a new contract at the Rossoneri, and opened the door on possible move back to the Premier League, though he would only entertain a move to a club with title ambitions.
Flamini made over 100 league appearances for Gunners in a four year spell having signed from Marseille in 2004.
Meanwhile, fellow French international Maxime Gonalons has opted to remain with Lyon for the forthcoming season, the Mail Online understands.
The 24 year old had reportedly been a target for the Gunners, though it appears that they will now have to turn their attention elsewhere.
Elsewhere, the Metro have reported that the club will finally make their bid for Queens Park Rangers goalkeeper Julio Cesar.
The Brazil international has been linked with a move to North London since the Hoops relegation to the Championship was confirmed.
Napoli are also reportedly interested in the former Inter Milan man, though the 33 year old has announced that he and his family would be happy to remain in the English capital.
