“Talk of formal offers for him is premature,” agent Moussa N’Diaye told Footmercato.com, as translated by Football Italia. “There is interest, but no actual proposals yet. As happens in every transfer session, he is linked with many clubs.
“His potential emerged after the experience on loan at Genoa. His style of football is very interesting. There are several options, including in England and Germany, but no rush.”
Niang has been on the books of Milan since 2012 and has a contract with the Italian giants until June 2019, according to Transfermarkt.co.uk.
The 21-year-old, who can play as a winger or as a forward, scored five goals and created 14 chances in 15 Serie A appearances for the Rossoneri last season.
The youngster had a pass accuracy of 74% and a shot accuracy of 47%, and won 19 headers, 27 dribbles and 13 tackles.
Niang may not be prolific yet, but he is genuinely talented and has huge potential.
The Frenchman needs to be shown confidence and has to get playing time, and perhaps moving to the Premier League this summer would be good for him.
West Ham, Everton and Leicester are all ambitious clubs, and Niang would benefit from playing in a very competitive environment.
