M'Baye Niang says he wants to stay with AC Milan.

The French striker has been linked with AS Monaco.

"I want to stay at Milan for as long as possible," declared the 18-year-old French-Senegalese forward in his Press conference.

"I am working for a new season and I will 100 per cent stay here. I want to do better than last term, improving in my finishing too.

"I work because I want to become stronger than Balotelli. He gives me a lot of advice, as do Kevin-Prince Boateng and Philippe Mexes. I can play as a centre-forward or support striker, as long as I get to play."
