French starlet wants to prove himself at the San Siro.
AC Milan forward M’Baye Niang has said that he has not given any thought into a move away from the club this summer as he hopes to stay and establish himself as a first team regular, Sky Sports reports.
The 18-year-old joined the Serie A giants last summer after catching the eye with Caen in his homeland. Milan had to beat off some stiff competition for his signature to bring him on board, and have decided to place trust in his ability to perform already without making outrageous expectations for someone so young.
Niang made 24 appearances across all competitions last season, scoring just one goal, and reports had suggested that he would be heading elsewhere this summer in a bid to get more regular first team football. The likes of Newcastle United, Genoa and Sampdoria have all been credited with holding an interest in the French Under-21 international.
However, he has rubbished reports that he could be set to move on by outlining his desire to become one of the main men of the side.
He told L’Equipe: “I’m happy at Milan and I want to stay.
“I know what I can give to the team and I don’t fear the competition for places.
“I can play as a striker, on the left or right, I’ll play wherever coach Massimiliano Allegri needs me.
“I know that I have the qualities to make an impact with this club.”
