There are reports that Milan could send Stephan El Shaarawy to Genoa in the hope of him rediscovering his form.
The Italian international has struggled with injury since his breakthrough season in 2012-13 when he scored 19 goals for the Rossoneri, scoring just twice in 23 games since.
After witnessing the revival of M’baye Niang during a loan spell at Genoa, Tuttosport reports that the Diavolo are considering bringing the Frenchman back to San Siro, with El Shaarawy moving the other way.
The 22-year-old began his career with the Grifone, and it’s believed that playing regularly away from the pressures at Milan could provide the spark to reignite his career.
Niang had not scored in Serie A before moving to the port city, but the 20-year-old now has three goals and an assist in eight appearances.
