Arsenal legend Mathieu Flamini, 36, ready to revive career with Brescia 18 months after being released by Getafe

MATHIEU FLAMINI is bidding to revive his playing career with Italian club Brescia – 18 months after last kicking a ball.

The ex-Arsenal midfielder, 36, is a free agent after being released by Spaniards Getafe last year.

Reports in Italy now claim the France international has contacted Serie B Brescia to offer his services.

The Lombardy-based club is said to be interested in Flamini, who won the Serie A title with AC Milan in 2011.

He spent five seasons with Milan in between his two spells with the Gunners.

The Marseille-born ace helped Arsene Wenger's side win three FA Cups during his seven years in North London.

He played for Crystal Palace four seasons ago before joining Getafe.

Flamini has kept busy away from football by running the biochemical company he co-founded.

He is understood to have contacted Brescia following a failed attempt to land a deal with fellow Serie B club Monza.

Brescia are seeking to boost their fortunes following relegation this summer.

They released former Manchester City and Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli earlier this year.

The club are owned by ex-Leeds United chairman Massimo Cellino. 

They currently lie 12th in Italy's 20-team second tier, having won just one of their opening five games.
