Arsenal have received a boost in their reported pursuit of Roma starlet Alessio Romagnoli after Milan CEO Adriano Galliani suggested that they would pull out of the race.

The Rossoneri have already seen several bids for the talented youngster rejected by their Serie A rivals, and in turn they have been questioning whether or not to raise their bid further.
However, Galliani has now made it clear that they will not negotiate for more than their €25m offer, which will alert Arsene Wenger who is reportedly tracking Romagnoli.
“Our offer does not change, if Roma accept it, fine. If not, we will look elsewhere,” he said, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.
Romagnoli has received rave reviews after his loan spell with Sampdoria last season, with former boss and current Milan coach Sinisa Mihajlovic describing him as ‘the new Alessandro Nesta’.
The Serbian tactician may well be regretting those comments now as Roma continue to push for a sizeable transfer fee which could yet deter the Gunners from making a bid too.
