Arsenal Plan January Bid for Milan Star Niang

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is planning to make a £6 million pound bid for AC Milan star M'Baye Niang who hasn't received much playing time so far this season.

The young French starlet has made just one start for the Rossoneri during the 2013-14 season with 6 substitute appearances to show for instead.

This is all due to the fact that the likes of Kaka, Birsa, Balotelli, Robinho, Matri all receiving more game time in the attacking positions and there's still Pazzini and El Shaarawy to return from injury.

Because of this Niang has been favoured to make a loan move in January to either Sampdoria or Genoa but he could bypass this and leave the club altogether instead.

Arsenal could be end up being his chosen escape route as the Gunners want someone to help Oliver Giroud who is currently the club's only first choice striker.
