According to Metro, Milner has been offered a £134k-a-week deal by City but it’s reported he will snub the deal so he can join Arsenal.
The England international comes off contract in the summer and has made just 17 starts in the Premier League this season and is believed to be in search for increased playing time.
Milner has also been linked with Liverpool, but the 29-year-old is reportedly now fully in favour of an Arsenal move after the Reds failed to qualify for the Champions League.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is looking to bolster his squad ahead of its planned assault on the Premier League title next season.
Milner would help add some much-needed steel to the Arsenal squad, and his signing could potentially help the Gunners challenge the likes of Chelsea, City and Manchester United for the title in 2015/16.
