Former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger describes reports that he is on the verge of taking over at AC Milan as "fake news".

Former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has described reports that he is on the verge of agreeing a deal to take over as the new manager of AC Milan as "fake news".

Speculation emerged earlier this week that the Frenchman would be handed a route back into football with the Italian outfit, replacing Gennaro Gattuso in charge at San Siro.

Wenger is on the lookout for a new job having left the Gunners after 22 years during the summer, but the 69-year-old has rubbished claims that any deal has been agreed with Milan.

"The only thing I can say is that it's fake news," Wenger told beIN Sports.

"If I signed somewhere I would tell you, but it's wrong news. I cannot master the rumours, I can only master what I do in my life."

Milan have recently appointed former Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis, who is understood to have been instrumental in ending Wenger's long reign at the Emirates Stadium.
