Slaven Bilic is interested in signing AC Milan forward M’Baye Niang, according to Sky in Italy.
Milan are asking for £13million for the striker and they would consider a loan with an option to buy in the summer.
Arsenal, Everton, Crystal Palace and Genoa are also interested.
AC Milan Manager Vincenzo Montella has confirmed that M’Baye Niang will not play in the Rossoneri’s Coppa Italia quarter-final against Juventus.
Montella spoke further about the former Caen man at a press conference, hinting that his progress has stalled in recent months.
“He’s always been involved in normal situations. Sometimes he’s been on the fringes but he’s never been out. As long as he’s a Milan player he’ll get the consideration he deserves.
“He has made himself available right from the start and he’s trying to grow so he can manage his talent better.
“He’s a player who has had his ups and downs and there are things he needs to improve. We tried, and we got to a point where we were delighted with the results – the boy was, too – and I’m not talking about technical results.
“He got to a certain point and then stopped, and I won’t pretend to know why, nor do I want to say.”
