England for El Shaarawy

Genoa asked for Stephan El Shaarawy, but Milan are more likely to send him towards the Premier League.

The Little Pharaoh has finally recovered from a fractured metatarsal and resumed training with the squad yesterday.

Genoa confirmed they would be interested in taking the forward back on loan to help him find his form next season.

However, both La Gazzetta dello Sport and the Corriere della Sera newspapers claim a more likely destination is England.

They report that El Shaarawy and his agent – who is also his brother – made a pact to leave Serie A if he were to quit Milan, the club he grew up supporting.

There is Premier League interest in the Italy international and his €2.5m per season wages are above what Genoa can probably afford.

In the past he has been linked with the likes of Arsenal, Tottenham and Manchester City.
