Arsenal transfers: Stephan El Shaarawy says he won't leave AC Milan amid interest from Napoli and Premier League
Stephan El Shaarawy won’t leave AC Milan this summer, according to the forward’s brother.
The Italy international has found his first-team opportunities limited this season, failing to score in four Serie A appearances.
It’s been a tough season for Stephan, but unfortunately accidents like this happen all the time to professionals

El Shaarawy has been linked with a move to Rafael Benitez’s Napoli, whilst Arsenal and Manchester City are also believed to be interested.
However, Manuel El Shaarawy claimed Milan don’t want to sell the 21-year-old despite the forward being on the fringes at the San Siro.
“I’ve heard rumours that [Napoli President Aurelio] De Laurentiis wants my brother,” Manuel El Shaarawy told Radio Crc.
“And of course, those sort of stories don’t make anyone happy.
“As far as I’m aware, Milan don’t want Stephan to leave, whether it’s on loan or not.
“It’s been a tough season for Stephan, but unfortunately accidents like this happen all the time to professionals.
“I doubt he’ll be fit for the World Cup, so now he’s training and hopes to be able to get in with the first team before the end of the season.”
