Arsenal proposed a double €48m deal for Sampdoria defender Joachim Andersen and midfielder Dennis Praet, both also Milan targets.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Gunners are ready to step into action after facing competition from the Rossoneri.
Centre-back Andersen and midfielder Praet are both valued at around €25m, so although Arsenal haven’t reached the asking price yet, they are getting very close.
Negotiations are expected to whittle down the differences, unless of course Milan come in with a formal bid for one or both players.
The Rossoneri have an advantage, as they are about to hire Sampdoria Coach Marco Giampaolo.
