M'Baye Niang: Linked with a summer move and admits he is interested in Milan
Caen starlet M'Baye Niang has revealed that he is 'really interested' in AC Milan after being impressed by the Italian club's training ground.
The 17-year-old forward is one of the most coveted young players in Europe after it became clear he could leave Caen following their relegation from Ligue 1.
Arsenal had appeared to be in pole position to land the teenager when they invited him for a trial earlier in the summer, while the likes of Manchester City and Tottenham have also been linked with a move.
However, it now looks as though Milan could be Niang's preferred destination after he admitted he is keen on the club.
"I was so impressed, it's magnificent," he said after reportedly visiting the training ground.
"I am really interested in Milan."
