Arsenal are considering a move for Torino forward M’Baye Niang according to Tuttosport as cited by The Mirror.
The 23-year-old had a fine World Cup for Senegal, scoring a goal and assisting another in the Group Stage as they were narrowly pipped by Japan to the Round of 16 on account of their fair play record.
The striker previously had a loan spell in the Premier League at Watford where he scored twice in an underwhelming stay with the Hornets.

Niang has never scored more than five goals in a league campaign, scoring four and assisting one in Serie A last season but his World Cup performances have clearly interested new Arsenal boss Unai Emery.
Arsenal fans have been reacting to the latest transfer link on Twitter and here’s a selection of some of their best comments.

He’s got potential, maybe Emery can help him fulfil it.
