AC Milan chief Galliani reveals talks for Arsenal's Adebayor

AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has revealed they're interested in Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor. The Rossoneri's top summer target remains Edin Dzeko - but with Wolfsburg reluctant to sell last season's Bundesliga's top scorer, Milan may have to look elsewhere.

"We are only looking for a forward, and our aim is Dzeko," AC Milan club administrator Adriano Galliani told the Italian media today.

"He is a Wolfsburg player, and they have a right to keep him - even though he continues to claim that his desire is to come to Milan.

"From experience, I know it's difficult to keep a player whose wish is to leave.

"If we fail to get Dzeko then (Sevilla striker) Luis Fabiano could be an alternative - as could Adebayor."

Milan have expressed an interest for Togo international Adebayor in the past, but Arsenal want to keep the 25-year-old striker.

"We had a meeting with (Arsenal coach Arsene) Wenger, but they didn't offer him [Adebayor] to us," said Galliani.

"Had they done that, we would have entered talks."
