Arsenal have rekindled their interest in signing AC Milan striker M’Baye Niang in the summer transfer window, according to reports.

Transfermerketweb is reporting that Arsenal have made enquiries about the France Under-21 international after being previously linked with a move to sign the striker.

The same article states that Arsenal face competition from Premier League rivals Everton to sign the 22-year-old centre-forward this summer.

Niang has two years remaining on his current AC Milan contract following a move from French side Caen in 2011.

Arsenal are in the market to sign a striker in the summer transfer window as Arsene Wenger looks to overhaul his squad ahead of the 2016-17 campaign.

The Gunners finished in fifth place in the Premier League table last season to miss out on a spot in the Champions League next term.

Arsenal ended the season on a positive note thanks to 2-1 victory over Premier League champions Chelsea in the FA Cup final at Wembley last month.

The north London side haven’t won the Premier League title since 2003-04.
