Gunners target confirms link
Egyptian full back Milo has confirmed that Arsenal are in the hunt to sign him and hopes a deal can be sorted this summer.
The highly-rated left-back claims that the Gunners have been showing an interest in him for the last three years and says he will make a decision on his future after the Olympic games. Lyon, Benfica and Sporting Lisbon are also keen on the 21-year-old, who plays for Haras Al Hodood in his homeland but the player is talking up a potential move to the Emirates Stadium. Left-back has been a problem area for Arsene Wenger in the past and it looks as though Milo could be drafted in over the coming weeks. "Arsenal officials have been following me since my participation in the Toulon tournament in 2009," he told FilGoal. "And the English team got more interested in me after Toulon 2012 and I'm now waiting for their official letter. "I will meet with the Haras Al Hodood officials before I leave with the Olympic squad on Thursday (to France for two warm-up matches) to understand their stance from this offer. "I believe the Arsenal scouts will watch me closely at the London Olympics. My participation at London 2012 is what will determine my next step, and I hope to come to a European club."
