Arsenal are reportedly interested in Torino attacking midfielder M’Baye Niang and are set to battle West Ham United for the Senegal international.

According to The Mirror, Arsenal have entered the race for M’Baye Niang. The Senegalese attacker had a good World Cup in Russia, which has seen the likes of West Ham and Arsenal interested in the signature of the Torino attacking midfielder.

M’Baye Niang is a product of the Caen academy in France. The player was snapped up by AC Milan in 2012 as a bright prospect for the future. The player though, has been lauded on loans, spending his seasons away from AC Milan at the likes of Montpellier, Genoa, Watford and Torino.

It is at Torino that Niang has shown glimpse of the promise his name was associated with during his nascent years at AC Milan. Despite a modest return, Niang did enough for Torino to make his stay permanent, with them buying him outright from the Rossoneri.

M’Baye Niang’s World Cup exploits though, have put him on the radar of several clubs, with Premier League duo Arsenal and West Ham emerging as potential suitors for the Senegalese star.

Arsenal have Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette as able options upfront, apart from Danny Welbeck. But, the Gunners lack proper wide attackers and have already lost out to Atletico Madrid in pursuit of Gelson Martins.
