According to Sky Italia's Gianluca Di Marzio, Everton and West Ham United have both made moves to sign AC Milan striker M'Baye Niang - but the Italians aren't sure whether to sell.

With Ronald Koeman now confirmed as Everton manager, the Toffees are looking to strengthen their attacking options, especially considering that question marks hang over the future of both Romelu Lukaku and Arouna Kone.

Meanwhile, West Ham are searching for a new striker under Slaven Bilic, after Diafra Sakho and Enner Valencia both disappointed last season, with Andy Carroll still suffering some injury problems.

It now appears that both clubs are targeting the same player, as Gianluca Di Marzio of Sky Italia reports that the two teams have made offers for AC Milan forward M'Baye Niang.

Niang, 21, was billed as one of the world's top young players during his time with Caen in his native France, and was eventually snapped up by AC Milan in the summer of 2012.

A winger or striker, Niang initially struggled with one goal in 24 games for Milan, and after loan spells with Montpellier and Genoa, he has now proven his worth at the San Siro.

With eight goals in 21 games in all competitions, Niang has shown his ability - and appears to have attracted interest, with Di Marzio suggesting that both Everton and West Ham have submitted proposals to try and sign Niang this summer.

However, it's added that Milan have yet to decide whether to sell Niang or keep him, meaning the two Premier League clubs may have to wait some time before finding out whether their offers have been successful.
