Arsenal hot on trail of Niang

Arsenal are weighing up a potential bid for AC Milan forward M'Baye Niang. The Frenchman has made a bright start to his season with the Rossoneri.

Niang, 21, has been closely watched by the Gunners in recent years with manager Arsene Wenger being a keen admirer of his services.

According to Calciomercato, the North London giants could lodge a winter raid for the attacker after he put up a string of impressive performances during the ongoing campaign.

Niang, who is mainly adept in the centre-forward position, is also capable playing on either wing.

And this has captured the attention of Wenger, who is seeking to add an additional player to his attack front to overcome any injury concerns.

AC Milan are for now reluctant to offload their asset in the New Year, and Arsenal would have to wait until the summer of 2017 to finalize a transfer.
