Arsenal have been handed a boost as Milan chief Adriano Galliani has insisted that they will not raise their offer for Alessio Romagnoli.
The Roma starlet has been heavily linked with an exit from the Stadio Olimpico this summer, and has made no secret of his desire to join the Rossoneri.

Napoli and Arsenal have both reportedly been monitoring his situation, but it is Milan who have been the only club to make an official offer.
Their latest bid stands at €25m plus bonuses, but with Roma holding out for €30m, Galliani has insisted that they will not be raising their offer again.
“We will not raise our offer by even €1, as it is already stratospheric. It all depends on Roma now,” he said, according to Football Italia.
With Roma signing Mohamed Salah and Edin Dzeko this week, the capital club may well need to sell Romagnoli to balance the books.
However, with Milan now waiting to see whether or not their bid is accepted, it gives the Gunners and Arsene Wenger an opportunity to swoop in for the 20-year-old if they believe that he is worth the investment.
