Arsenal have been drawn against European giants AC Milan in the Europa League last 16.

Arsene Wenger’s side saw off their Swedish opponents Ostersunds 4-2 on aggregate but came close to giving up the three-goal advantage they had built during Thursday’s second leg at the Emirates Stadium.

Milan currently sit seventh in Serie A. The Italian outfit dispatched Bulgarian club Ludogorets Razgrad 4-0 on aggregate in the previous round.

With both sides struggling in domestically, qualification to the Champions League  via the Europa League appears to be their best bet of a return to pinnacle of club football.

Milan are now coached by former Rangers midfielder Gennaro Gattuso, who was named as manager in November after Vincenzo Montella was sacked.

Arsene Wenger’s side will travel to the San Siro on March 8, before entertaining the Italian giants at the Emirates on March 15.
