AC Milan: Stephan El Shaarawy Not Going Anywhere


20-year-old striker Stephan El Shaarawy has been highly coveted around Europe, and has been linked with a move to Chelsea. However, it seems that The Blues will have to find a boost for the team’s offense elsewhere, as the Italian youngster is expected to stay in AC Milan, according to talksport.co.uk.

AC Milan have insisted Stephan El Shaarawy will not leave the Serie A club this summer, amid reports he could be set for a switch to Chelsea.

But Milan have responded to the rumours by stating the striker will not be leaving the San Siro.

According to the report, El Shaarawy and Milan vice president Adriano Galliani met and the discussions went well. El Shaarawy is content with the situation in Milan and is determined to stay with the club.

So that should put an end to all the rumors, as the team is officially saying that they will hold onto their young star. El Shaarawy played in 34 Serie A games and found the net 16 times.
