ARSENAL have reportedly agreed to play AC Milan in a friendly during the World Cup.
A host of Mikel Arteta’s squad will be jetting off to Qatar come the middle of November.

The Gunners are heading to the Middle East themselves for a warm weather training camp in Dubai.
And the Daily Mirror states that the Premier League leaders have agreed to face Milan during it.
The report also states the club “are also looking at another big-name opponent” to take on before domestic action resumes.
