M'Baye Niang: Linked with Everton and West Ham

Everton and West Ham are both made offers to sign AC Milan attacker M’Baye Niang, according to reports in the Italian press. 

The 21-year-old, who plays primarily as a winger or striker, is attracting plenty of interest this summer with the Premier League pair jumping to the head of the queue, claims respected journalist Gianluca Di Marzio.

New Toffees boss Ronald Koeman will be looking to boost his attacking threats, especially with the recent speculation regarding the futures of Romelu Lukaku and Arouna Kone.

However, West Ham maybe in the market for a attacking midfielder or a striker as the futures of Diafra Sakho and Enner Valencia also remain unclear.

Niang was once seen as one of the world’s top young talents whilst he was at French club Caen, but since singing for AC Milan back in 2012 the Frenchman has struggled to find his footing after managing just one goal in 24 appearances for the club.

After recent loan spells in Montepellier and Genoa, the youngster has now seemed to have proven his worth and shown us once more what made him one of the top young players in the world, scoring eight goals in 21 games in all competitions last season for the Rossoneri.
