Chelsea chase former Arsenal target
Niang started his career with 3 youth spells at various French clubs before becoming a regular in Ligue 1 club Caen’s starting XI.
The Frenchman made 30 appearances for Caen, scoring 5 goals from the wing before attracting AC Milan who then bought him for an undisclosed fee last summer.
The Blues have shown their interest in much young talent in recent times. Signings such as Oscar, Romelu Lukaku and Lucas Piazon have all been made with one eye on the future and now M’Baye Niang could be another youthful addition to the Londoners’ squad.
Chelsea sent representatives from their scouting network to watch Niang make a substitute appearance in Milan’s very impressive 2-0 victory over Barcelona in the Champions League not so long ago.
So with Abramovich making a stance into buying young player could M’Baye Niang be the next youngster through the door at Stamford Bridge?
