Arsenal chairman Peter Hill-Wood appears resigned to losing midfielder Mathieu Flamini at the end of the season.

The French international’s current contract at Emirates Stadium is due to expire in the summer, and he has yet to sign a new deal despite a being offered a new dea by the London club.

“We have made what we think is a pretty generous offer and we are waiting to hear whether he will accept or not,” Hill-Wood said in the Daily Star.

“You just don’t know nowadays. You think players have a pretty good life, but, somehow, someone persuades them the grass might be greener somewhere else.

“So I don’t know the answer, all I know is we think we have pushed the boat out.”

Juventus have been monitoring Flamini for some time now, and are believed to have offered him a deal worth around £10,000 a week more than the Gunners.

The Italian club’s director Jean-Claude Blanc confirmed that a deal for the player is almost complete, and has dismissed speculation claiming that their Serie A rivals Milan could hijack the deal.

“We have the advantage (over Milan),” he said.

“As a child Flamini was a supporter of Juve.

“We also have a sporting project in place and we will be in the Champions League. Milan will not.”
