Arsenal up interest in Egypt defender

Arsenal are interested in signing Egyptian full back Milo, according to the player. Reported on ClubCall, the 21-year-old has stated that Arsenal are just one of a number of clubs interested in buying him and that the North London side have been tracking him for some 3 years.

He said: “Arsenal officials have been following me since my participation in the Toulon tournament in 2008. And the English team got more interest in me after Toulon 2012 and now I’m waiting for their official letter.”

The highly rated left back did, however, state that he will not make a decision on his future until after the Olympic games this summer. Hoping that he will once again show his worth on a big stage, with the world’s scouts watching. He said:

“I will meet with the Haras Al Hodood officials before I leave with the Olympic squad on Thursday 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.”

Milo currently plays in the Egyptian Premier League for Haras Al Hodood and has attracted plenty of interest in his four years at the club. If Arsenal do make a move for the defender they can expect competition from the likes of Lyon, Benfica and Sporting Lisbon.

The Gunners currently have Kieran Gibbs and Andre Santos who play on the left side of defense, both of whom have suffered from injuries keeping them out of action for long spells in the past few seasons.
