Kiwior to AC Milan?
Football Transfer Centre

Arsenal defender Jakub Kiwior could be allowed to leave for AC Milan when the transfer window reopens in January.

The centre-back joined the Gunners from Spezia last winter and he has since made only 19 appearances in all competitions.

The Pole has been a fringe player for the Gunners and Gazzetta dello Sport claim that he could leave in the New Year.

Milan are firm admirers of the 23-year-old and they are keen on signing him on loan with an option to buy in the summer.

The Italian outlet claim that Mikel Arteta won't stop the centre-back from leaving, provided the right offer is made.

The news comes as a surprise, considering the Gunners are short in the central and left-back departments as of now.

With Takehiro Tomiyasu and Jurrien Timber injured, Kiwior is the first-choice back-up for William Saliba and Gabriel in central defence.

He is also the immediate deputy for Oleksandr Zinchenko at left-back and it would be a huge surprise if he leaves this winter.
