West Ham United are lining up a loan move for AC Milan striker M'Baye Niang for a £250,000 fee, according to a report.

West Ham United are reportedly in talks with AC Milan to try to sign forward M'Baye Niang on a loan deal.

The Hammers have had a long-term interest in the 19-year-old, who spent half of the previous campaign on loan at Montpellier.

Milan are asking for a £250,000 fee for the France Under-21 international in a deal that could see the striker join Sam Allardyce's side for £4m next summer, should they wish to make the move permanent, reports the Daily Mail.

Niang scored four goals in 19 appearances for Montpellier during his loan spell.
