M’Baye Niang looks set to leave Milan this summer, as he does not fit in the plans of club coach Vincenzo Montella. The French youngster already spent half a season in England at Watford last season and his career could continue on the British Isles.
Niang has continuously been loaned out for three of the last four seasons. He has spent time on loan at Montepellier in Ligue 1, Genoa, and lastly the already mentioned Watford. The Frenchman seems set to remain in England, as Everton are on the verge of competing the signing according to Liverpool Echo.
The Merseyside newspaper reports that Niang was at Finch Farm yesterday, which is the Toffee‘s training ground. The 22-year-old will reportedly cost Everton €19 million.
Among others, Niang is known for getting into trouble off the pitch. At Milan he drove without a driving license a couple of weeks after completing his move. During his spell at Montepillier he crashed his Ferrari into a tree. Last summer, the reportedly soon-to-be Everton man also posted a video on Instagram of him jumping off a roof into a pool, for which he received a lot of criticism from Milan supporters.
