A new name is being linked with a move to Arsenal this summer and this time it is Egyptian youngster Milo. The Sun has reported that Arsene Wenger is planning a move for the young defender who plays in the Egyptian Premier League.

Milo, whose real name is Islam Ramadan, has played for local club Haras El Hodood in their first team since the start of the 2010-11 season. The defender had been impressive last season and the club was at the top of the league when it was stopped abruptly in February. Milo is one of Egypt's top players and has been capped at the Under-20 level by the national side. Milo is expected to travel to London as a part of the Egyptian Olympics squad.

The defender is being tracked by a host of clubs including Lyon, Benfica and Sporting Lisbon and the player is likely to draw more suitors when Egypt play in the Olympics next month. With Sebastien Squillaci and Johan Djorou expected to leave the Emirates this summer, the 21 year-old could be a valuable addition to the Gunners' squad.
