Monaco: AC Milan`s Italian international striker Stephan El Shaarawy has been loaned to AS Monaco for a season with an option to buy, the French Ligue 1 club said on Monday.
"Stephan El Shaarawy joins AS Monaco`s workforce. After more than 100 matches played in the Milan jersey," AS Monaco confirmed on their website of the player who has scored 27 goals for Milan.
The 22-year-old El Shaarawy, born in Italy to an Italian mother and Egyptian father, had been touted as a rising star, arriving in Milan in the summer of 2011, and scoring 16 goals in the 2012/2013 season.
But he has been hampered by injury over the past two seasons only returning at the end of 2014-2015 campaign, scoring a double against Torino in the penultimate game.
