Taye Tawio

AC Milan’s Nigerian fullback Taye Taiwo’s is not in contact with Arsenal, with a possible move to the Gunners in January unlikely, according to the player's agent.

"At the moment there is no huge news about Nigerian players, with Arsenal there was only a rumour. I certainly don't know that Arsene Wenger is looking for a left-back but at this time there has not been any official offer at AC Milan," Taye Taiwo’s agent Fabio Parisi was quoted as saying by KikOff.

Reports suggested that Taiwo, who signed a three-year contract, with Milan last summer, could leave the San Siro in January after failing to establish himself with the Rossoneri.

He has played only four games in 16 serie A matches.

Premier League clubs Fulham, Liverpool, Stoke City and Newcastle United have expressed their interest in the fullback.
