The agent of AC Milan striker M'Baye Niang admits that West Ham United have expressed an interest in signing the 19-year-old.

M'Baye Niang's agent has confirmed that West Ham United are interested in signing him from AC Milan this summer.

The Hammers were linked to the striker last month after he admitted that he was unsure of his future of the Serie A side.

Stephane Courbis told "Will Niang remain at Milan? Currently, we do not know. We met with the club about a month ago.

"Interest from West Ham? Yes, I can confirm that they like him. It is difficult to say at this time [whether he will stay] without having had a good conversation with the new coach."

The 19-year-old joined Milan in 2012, but had a spell on loan with Montpellier earlier this year.
