El Shaarawy linked with Arsenal and Chelsea
Arsenal and Chelsea have been linked with a January move for flamboyant but out of form AC Milan forward Stephan El Shaarawy with the Gunners seemingly in pole position to capture his signature.
The Italy international has had a shocking season for Milan so far, playing just four times in Serie A and failing to find the back of the net. He has scored in the Champions League but he underwent surgery on his injured foot last month which has ruled him out until March.
It is this list of problems that suggests the Rossoneri will listen to offers for the 21-year-old and Arsenal are a best price of 4/1 with Bet Victor to bring him in during the January window. The Gunners are suffering something of an injury crisis amongst their attacking players with Olivier Giroud, Nicklas Bendtner and Theo Walcott all out and they are certainly expected to strengthen this month.
With some bookmakers El Shaarawy is just 5/1 to join Chelsea this month but the Blues remain 12/1 with Bet Victor to sign him by the end of January.
