Stephen El Shaarawy will not be leaving AC Milan this summer despite a frustrating season, according to his agent.

The 21-year-old hit headlines last season with his flying forward play bringing 16 goals and helping AC Milan to what seemed like an unlikely Champions League place.

However, his current campaign could not have been more different from the last. El Shaarawy has missed the vast majority of the campaign and will miss out on the World Cup with Italy.

His long-standing metatarsal injury led to reports that AC Milan are preparing to offload the youngster in the summer with both Chelsea and Arsenal keen to take him off their hands.

Arsene Wenger has shown an interest in signing up Europe's best young talents in an effort to build a squad capable of bringing the Premier League title back to the Emirates Stadium.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho was also reported to be keen on El Shaarawy with the Special One looking to stamp his mark on the Blues team at Stamford Bridge for next season.

Both the Gunners and Chelsea were facing competition from Napoli but according to the player's brother, who also doubles up as his agent, Milan have no intention of selling their young star.

"I've heard rumours that [Napoli President Aurelio] De Laurentiis wants my brother," Manuel El Shaarawy told Radio Crc.

"And of course, those sort of stories don't make anyone happy.

"As far as I'm aware, Milan don't want Stephan to leave, whether it's on loan or not.

"It's been a tough season for Stephan, but unfortunately accidents like this happen all the time to professionals.

"I doubt he'll be fit for the World Cup, so now he's training and hopes to be able to get in with the first team before the end of the season."
