Mathieu Flamini is expected the join the train of European stars moving to the MLS this summer.
The French midfielder whose contract at Arsenal expires this summer is expected to leave the club, with Arsenal not planning to offer him a new deal along with captain Mikel Arteta, having already gotten a replacement for them in Egyptian midfielder Mohammed Elneny.
The veteran midfielder returned to Arsenal on a second spell in 2013 after a first spell that saw him become a vital part of Arsenal’s midfield, including serving as a left back in Arsenal’s run to the final in the Champions league in 2006.
On his second spell, Flamini’s versatility and experience has been a great asset to Arsenal, but age has caught up with him, prompting the Gunners to allow him run his contract out. There are reported interests from the Serie A, but he seems set to open talks with a number of MLS clubs ahead of a switch to America.
