Milo: Looking to impress Arsenal
Egyptian left-back Milo admits he would love to seal a move to Arsenal this summer.
Sky Sports revealed earlier this week that Arsenal had joined the likes of Lyon, Benfica and Sporting Lisbon in the chase for the 21-year-old - who currently plays for Haras Al Hodood.
Now the player has confirmed that he is aware of Arsenal's interest and he is hopeful he can impress them during the forthcoming Olympic tournament.
He told FilGoal: "Arsenal officials have been following me since my participation in the Toulon tournament in 2009.
"And the English team got more interested in me after Toulon 2012 and I'm now waiting for their official letter.
"I will meet with the Haras Al Hodood officials before I leave with the Olympic squad on Thursday (to France for two warm-up matches) to understand their stance from this offer.
"I believe the Arsenal scouts will watch me closely at the London Olympics. My participation at London 2012 is what will determine my next step, and I hope to come to a European club."
