AC Milan will shop in the English transfer market to find a new striker in January.

Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani needs to find a replacement for Antonio Cassano following his heart op, says Secolo XIX.

Galliani will shop in England, with Chelsea striker Didier Drogba high on his shortlist.

However, he won't move for Drogba until he has clarity over Carlos Tevez's situation at Manchester City. Should City be prepared to do business, Galliani will make a firm move for the Argentine.

The Rossoneri manager won't be intimidated by Tevez's reputation, having tamed Cassano, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Ronaldinho in recent seasons.
