Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi will meet coach Leonardo and his technical director Adriano Galliani for transfer talks today.
And Gunners skipper Fabregas, 22, will be top of their target list.
Milan are ready to tempt Fabregas with a five-year contract and a big boost to his current �90,000-a-week deal.
Leonardo is determined to mount a serious challenge to rivals Inter Milan, who won last season's Serie A title.
And Berlusconi is ready to back his new man, who has stepped in to replace boss Carlo Ancelotti.

Fabregas is under contract to Arsenal until 2014 and is a prize asset in their rapidly-emptying dressing room.
Emmanuel Adebayor and Kolo Toure have already left the club this summer, while Philippe Senderos is attracting interest from Everton.
Moroccan Marouane Chamakh, 25, was locked in talks last night with Bordeaux to try and force a �6m move to Arsenal.
The hitman lashed out at the French champions and warned he would be unable to perform for them if they blocked his move to the Premier League.
He admitted Sunderland were also in talks with Bordeaux.
Chamakh only has one year left on his deal and could join any club for nothing in January.
He said: “Clearly I will stay and see out my contract if Bordeaux shut the door to my move. But it's certain I won't be 100 per cent.
“To miss out on a move to Arsenal will play in my head. I'll feel betrayed. I won't have a good season.
“If I go to the end of my contract, it will be a pity for me and for them. Everyone will be a loser.”
