Stephan El Shaarawy, AC Milan

AC Milan are open to selling star youngster Stephen El Shaarawy this summer, which has in turn, alerted Manchester City.

The Metro is reporting that the forward, who is also being watched by Arsenal, could be sold in the transfer window to resolve financial issues at the Milan club.

“He is the player who has the biggest value in the market,” Milan chief Adriano Galliani said.

“The price? It has not yet been fixed, but I cannot say that he is unsellable, because in modern football that is a difficult word to say.”

However, El Shaarawy played down talks of joining the Premier League, saying: “I don’t think I will leave Milan. If City really wants me, it flatters me.

“But I want to stay here at AC Milan. I always felt total confidence from all: the club, coach Massimiliano Allegri and team-mates.”

El Shaarawy is one of the hottest talents in Europe after scoring 18 goals in Serie A this season, and he has also impressed on international duty with Italy.

The 20-year-old could have featured for Italy’s Under-21 side in the European Championship in Israel, but the Milan forward was with the senior squad instead, starting in Italy’s 0-0 draw with the Czech Republic last Friday.

Would you want to see El Shaarawy in England? Should his loyalty to Milan be praised?

    First of all,El Sharaawy is 1 of high rated young stars in the world of soccer.Honestely, Milan should not sell the young striker cos it’s really good for both country and the club,because at man city he won’t have enough time to play compared to Milan due to city squad.I would love to see him at Milan next season.
