M’Baye Niang is reportedly holding out for a move to Arsenal despite reports suggesting the Milan star has agreed terms with Everton.
The Toffees are thought to be edging closer to signing the midfielder – who spent last season on loan at Watford.
But Italian publication CalcioMercato claim Niang is yet to agree to join Everton because he is waiting to see if Arsenal make an offer for him.
Arsene Wenger is reportedly set to renew his interest in long-time target M’Baye Niang, according to reports.
Niang is a familiar name to Arsenal fans as we were heavily linked with a January move for the French forward.
That wasn’t the first time his name cropped up in Arsenal’s rumor mill, we first tried to sign him five years ago when he was at Caen but he opted to join AC Milan.
Wenger was also said to be preparing a move for him last winter but he somehow joined Watford on loan until the end of the season.
With the forward not in Milan’s future plans, he is being tipped to leave the San Siro permanently this summer and again Arsenal are reportedly one of the clubs that could sign him.
The report says Arsenal recently made enquiries about the forward and he has been added to Wenger’s summer shortlist.
Niang, 22, has always been tipped to have a great career but his development has stalled since joining Milan and it doesn’t look like he will live up to the hype of his early days.
