Gunners lead Milan in race to sign £20 million Portuguese midfielder

Arsenal are leading AC Milan in the race to sign Sporting Lisbon midfielder Miguel Veloso. The Portuguese midfielder has long been linked with a move to the Premier League with Arsenal always said to be monitoring the 22-year old closely. (fansfc)

Veloso has never hidden his desire to play in England and Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is said to be readying a £20 million bid for the player. AC Milan manager Carlo Anceoloti is also keenly monitoring Veloso and he is also willing to meet the £20 million price-tag giving to Veloso by Sporting.

I personally would prefer if Veloso joined Arsenal, simply because I would see more of him. He is a terrific midfield player that I feel would be more than capable of replacing Matthieu Flamini who left to join AC Milan last month.
