Report: Arsenal target James Milner

Arsenal are interested in signing Manchester City midfielder James Milner, according to reports.

Arsenal are reportedly interested in signing Manchester City midfielder James Milner.

The 28-year-old is believed to have asked for a move away from the club after starting only 12 matches in the Premier League this season.

According to The Guardian, Arsenal are planning a £10m offer, with Arsene Wenger promising to play Milner in his preferred position in the centre of midfield.

City are reluctant to allow Milner to leave as they need to have eight home-grown players in their Champions League squad.

With the likes of Gareth Barry, Joleon Lescott and Micah Richards all expected to depart the club in the summer, Manuel Pellegrini would be wary of losing another English player.
