El Shaarawy: Signs a new deal

AC Milan striker Stephan El Shaarawy has committed his future to the Serie A giants after signing a one-year contract extension.

The 20-year-old Italy international, who has scored 18 goals in all competitions this season, will remain with the Rossoneri until June 30, 2018.

A statement on acmilan.com read: "Stephan El Shaarawy and Milan have prolonged their professional relationship with a signature that arrived today."

El Shaarawy made a quiet start to his career at the San Siro after leaving Genoa in June 2011, scoring only two goals as Milan surrendered their league title to Juventus last season.

With several Barclays Premier League clubs including Arsenal and Manchester City reportedly showing interest in the striker, El Shaarawy was handed an improved deal running until June 2017 at the end of last season.

Having made his Italy Under-21 debut with Milan, the forward missed out on a place at the European Championships but made his full international debut in a friendly match against England in August.

As Milan suffered their worst start to a Serie A season in decades, losing six of their first 12 matches, El Shaarawy's return of 14 league goals before the new year kept the Rossoneri out of the relegation zone.

The January arrival of his international team-mate Mario Balotelli from Manchester City has seen El Shaarawy take a more auxiliary role in attack but his goal in Sunday's Milan derby ensured a point from a 1-1 draw with Inter.

Last week, El Shaarawy provided the crucial pass for Sulley Muntari to score the second goal as Milan beat Barcelona 2-0 in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie.
