Rome: Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed his interest in AC Milan striker Stephan El Shaarawy, saying the Italian`s "philosophy fits perfectly with mine".

But the 20-year-old is unlikely to leave Milan in January as he is the current Serie A top scorer and the Rossoneri`s most prolific player in all competition this season, reports Xinhua.

"El Shaarawy is a very mobile, very technical young player. His philosophy fits perfectly with mine," Wenger said.

The French tactician also said a January offer was not out of the question.

"You never know. I am just saying I love the way he plays," he said.

El Shaarawy is valued at a minimum of 30 million euros, but Milan have pledged not to sell their latest discovery.
