AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri would be happy to take either Catania striker Maxi Lopez or Manchester City's Carlos Tevez.

The Rossoneri have done a deal with Catania for Lopez, but he'll only arrive if the club fail in a new bid to net the Manchester City man.

"I consider myself as lucky because the club will provide me with an important player," Allegri said.

"Lopez? We've evaluated a few things and he's a great player. If he wasn't then we wouldn't be considering him.

"I'm living through this period normally. I'm calm, the club are looking after things and we'll see how it ends up. The club know what they are doing."
