- The Portugal international has courted interest from a number of clubs after hitting top form with the Serie A giants
- Leão has scored 10 goals so far this season, with five of those coming after the turn of the new year in just seven appearances

Arsenal has become the latest Premier League club keen to sign AC Milan striker, Rafael Leão, in the summer.
The 22-year-old has also already courted the interest of Everton and Wolves following his spectacular form in Italy with the Serie A giants.
Leão had a difficult start to life in the San Siro after his move to Milan in 2019 from Lille, but has since managed to hit top form.
The Portuguese has already scored five goals in just seven appearances since the turn of the year to take his tally to 10 goals so far this season.
His impressive goalscoring form has since seen him attract interest from Premier League clubs who are keen to have him bolster their attack in the summer.
Arsenal join race for Leão
According to the Metro UK, citing Indian publication, La Repubblica, Arsenal are now considering a move for Leão.
The Gunners' interest in the 22-year-old comes after they missed out on Dusan Vlahovic in January, with the ex-Fiorentina strike moving to Juventus.
It remains to be seen if AC Milan would let the youngster depart, especially considering how highly his manager, Stefano Pioli, has spoken about him.
"He reminds me so much of (Thierry) Henry," the AC Milan boss was quoted saying.
"He has understood that he has to work in a certain way," he added.
