The Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have been groaning at this one as the club are considering a move for Torino and Senegal star, M’Baye Niang. The 23-year-old could be joining The Gunners from Torino, despite only just signing for the Turin club, according to Tuttosport, via The Mirror.

If the rumours are true, Arsenal could be competing with Everton, Nice, Marseille and Monaco for the striker who had a superb World Cup, getting a goal and an assist in Senegal’s three group games before they were eliminated on their disciplinary record, as Japan had picked up fewer bookings than the Africans. Now though, with Niang at home and a number of clubs still shocked by his amazing displays, he could be looking for a move.
It would be a surprise to see Niang move on again this summer. The player spent last season on-loan at Torino from Milan and just five days ago on the 1st July, he secured a permanent move to Torino. It’s very rare to see a player move twice in the same transfer window, although it has been done and it could be done again by Niang if he does decide that the Serie A isn’t for him next season and TheEmiratess is where he wants to be.

Didn’t he already sign for Torino??

No we don't need him

He's genuinely as brainless as anyone can be.

As you can see, the Arsenal fans in the Tavern aren’t best pleased with the Niang links as they believe they can do much better than the Senegal man.
