It has been reported that Everton manager Ronald Koeman is ready to spend as much as £16 million in order to sign the 22-year-old, who can operate as a winger or as a forward.
Niang is promising and talented young player, but Everton should be smart and not spend £16m on him.
Everton manager Koeman should pull out of the race to sign the former Caen youngster and allow the Gunners to waste their money on him.
The fact that fallen giants Milan allowed the attacker to leave on loan in the January transfer market speaks volume; this is a club who are in no position to let go of their best players, yet they let the youngster join Watford.
True, Niang is talented, but he is largely unproven and inconsistent and would be a massive gamble signing, for Everton or for Arsenal.
During his spell at Milan, the 22-year-old has been out on loan at three different clubs - Montpellier, Genoa and Watford.
During the 2016-17 season, the former France Under-21 international scored two goals and provided two assists in 15 Premier League starts for Watford and scored three goals and provided two assists in 13 Serie A starts for Milan, according to WhoScored.
