Milan will reportedly listen to offers for teenage striker M’Baye Niang during the January transfer window.

The teenager, just 17, joined the Diavolo in the summer from Caen for a fee believed to be around €2m.

However, after just one substitute appearance in Serie A, the San Siro giants are ready to show him the door.

A move to England could be on the cards as the forward was being linked with Arsenal, Spurs and Everton before his move to the peninsula.

A host of Premier League clubs are likely to be interested in a January move for AC Milan wonderkid M’Baye Niang, with the Italians reportedly ready to listen to offers for the former Caen youngster.

The decision to sell the 17-year-old after just six months seems surprising, particularly considering the Rossoneri went to great lengths to beat a host of other clubs to the Frenchman’s signature this summer.

Indeed, the  winger spent time on trial at no less than four Premier League clubs over the summer, with Arsenal, Everton, Tottenham and Man City all taking a look at the 17-year-old.

It was the Toffees who came the closest to signing Niang, with boss David Moyes understood to be very confident of a deal at one stage but, perhaps unsurprisingly, the talented starlet choose the sunshine of Milan over Merseyside.

While its possible Milan have been unimpressed with Niang’s footballing ability during his brief stay at the San Siro, the decision to let him go could also be down to off-field factors. The young winger was caught driving without a license with a month of arriving in Italy (and promptly tried to pretend he was someone else) and rumours that he is more trouble than he’s worth will likely make interested Premier League bosses think twice.
