Former Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas has agreed to join French Ligue 1 giants AS Monaco in this January transfer window.

Trusted French news outlet L’Equipe revealed that the ex-Gunners skipper and his representatives met with Monaco vice-president Vadim Vasilyev on Sunday to discuss the transfer to the Principality club.

It was revealed that the Spaniard has agreed to join the French Ligue 1 outfit on a two-and-a-half year deal until the end of the 2020/21 season.

Monaco are still a long way off from completing a transfer for the Spanish international player with the club yet to agree on a transfer fee with Chelsea.

The 31-year-old has six months left on the contract that he signed when he sealed a transfer to the Blues from Spanish champions Barcelona in the summer of 2014.

Fabregas signed a five-year deal when he joined the Stamford Bridge outfit from Barcelona.

He was an integral part of the Chelsea team under former managers Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte.

Fabregas won a Premier League title each under the two aforementioned managers but his role has been somewhat reduced since Maurizio Sarri was appointed the Chelsea manager last summer.

He has been a bit-part player for Chelsea since the start of the season.
