Arsenal and Liverpool have both been dealt a blow in their pursuit of AC Milan forward Stephan El Shaarawy.
His agent has told the media that it would take a significant offer from any club to tempt him into leaving Italian giants AC Milan, despite their current struggles in Serie A.
The Premier League duo have both been heavily linked with a move for El Shaarawy in recent months, and the talented wide player would almost certainly improve their options.
The 22 year old has been linked with a move away from Milan in January, and it is not just English sides interested in signing him.
Both Borussia Dortmund and Roma are thought to see him as an option.
However, his agent Manuel El Shaarawy has insisted that, given his importance to the club, El Shaarawy would not be interested in departing unless he is made a huge offer.
He said: “I have not been contacted by Borussia Dortmund, nor by Roma, nor by any other club.
“Stephan will not leave Milan in January unless there is a sensational offer, the type that no-one can be sure will arrive.
“He is at the centre of the Milan project, and the relationship with the coach and the environment is excellent.”
Despite his denial, it seems as though El Shaarawy’s agent is looking to see if there is any interest in the player. Milan have struggled this season and it would not be surprising if he is looking to leave.
