Former Arsenal and AC Milan midfielder Mathieu Flamini has been linked with a possible move to Leeds United this summer. The 32-year-old is currently without a club after his contract with Arsenal expired at the end of last season.

Supers Commesse have speculated Massimo Cellino could try to persuade Flamini to join the club in this transfer window in order to give Garry Monk an experienced midfielder.

The Championship side have already brought in six players this summer, and have been showing an interest in a number of others.

Following their links with former Juventus star Simone Pepe in recent weeks it would be an ambitious move by the Elland Road club to sign Flamini, and even though there wouldn’t be a transfer fee his wages could be a stumbling block.

Flamini became something of a cult hero for Arsenal fans, especially when it was learned of his involvement with an alternative energy company, based in Italy. He may well want to dedicate more time to that, rather than play Championship football.

Flamini took the decision to sign for AC Milan on a free transfer in 2009. During his time at the San Siro he made nearly 100 Serie A appearances, before eventually ending up back at Arsenal.

This looks like speculation to us, and nothing more.
