Arsenal have reignited their interest in AC Milan forward M’Baye Niang according to talkSPORT.
Reports have suggested the forward is unsettled at the San Siro, and will seek a move away in January.
The Gunners have been linked with a move for the forward in the past, but the Italian giants pipped them to his signature in the summer of 2012.
The Frenchman has endured a tough time since however, and has only managed one league appearance this season.
A paperwork error has prevented Niang playing, whilst he has also been left out of the Italian’s Champions League squad.
Niang underwent trials with Arsenal, Tottenham and Everton before agreeing to sign for Milan in 2012, but he may now be tempted by a move to north London, especially with Wenger’s men currently sitting top of the Premier League.
Arsenal are in the market for a new forward in January, with Olivier Giroud shouldering much of the responsibility during the opening 15 games of the season.
Wenger has been a known long term admirer of fellow countryman Niang, but may well face competition for his signature.
A host of clubs will attempt to keep the 18-year-old in Italy according to local reports, including Parma, Genoa, and Sampdoria.
