AC Milan are only willing to let M’Baye Niang leave the San Siro this month on a loan swap deal.
The 22-year-old Frenchman has been linked with a move away from Milan this month, with Genoa and Torino already tabling offers for the striker’s services.
Niang has also reportedly attracted interest from the Premier League with Arsenal, Manchester United, Everton, Crystal Palace and West Ham all believed to be interested.
Milan have told potential suitors that the forward will not be sold this month but, according to the club’s official television channel, Milan TV (via Metro), say they will only consider a loan exchange, and will not send Niang out without receiving a replacement in return.
Although the Gunners have been linked this month and in the past with Niang, Arsene Wenger has ruled out the possibility of signing a striker as he has the likes of Alexis Sanchez, Olivier Giroud and Danny Welbeck at his disposal. The Frenchman may however consider a bid for his fellow countryman this summer should Sanchez decide to leave Arsenal.
