Both Arsenal and Chelsea have been given a transfer boost after one of their targets, Stephan El Shaarawy, could be forced out of AC Milan in the upcoming window, TalkSPORT reports.
The forward has admitted to wanting to remain where he is, but could leave as his first team chances are very limited due to a number of injuries, which include a broken foot and a thigh strain.
In addition to his fitness, he has also fell behind other club forwards such as Mario Balotelli, Robinho, and Giampaolo Pazzini, limiting his Serie A appearances to only six matches.
“He always put in the performances when fit and his last two appearances showed he has found his form after a long lay-off,” his agent and brother, Manuel El Shaarawy, told Football Italia.
“Will his future be at Milan? We’ll have to wait and see what the club decides.
“Stephan is certainly an important player, but there are many changes going on.
“He has always been a Milan fan, so the intention is to stay, but we need to evaluate all the situations. We have to see what Milan decides.”
