AC Milan coach Max Allegri admits he'd be happy if the club managed to sign Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli.

Allegri admits they need to buy a new striker in January.

"We need a striker, a Milan striker with the characteristics of Filippo Inzaghi," said the coach.

"However, I am happy with what we have. Balotelli? He is a Manchester City striker, but I would certainly not be angry if he came."
