AC Milan are confident of beating Manchester United and Chelsea to the signing of Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey, according to the Metro.

The Italian giants are one of an increasing number of clubs who are interested in taking advantage of the breakdown in contract talks between the Welshman and Arsenal.

United and Chelsea have both been tracking the 27-year-old in the past with Liverpool recently entering the fray, and reports claim that he is open to making a move to either United or Chelsea.

However, the Rossoneri have their plans mapped to come out on top in the race for the player and involves a former Arsenal chief.

AC Milan poached Arsenal CEO Ivan Gazidis last month and will see him move to the San Siro later in the year and they believe he could be used to lure Ramsey to Italy.

Gazidis has insider information on how the contract negotiations between Arsenal and Ramsey went down and knows what the Welshman would want. Milan hope they can use that knowledge to their advantage.
