AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani admits they need to sign a new striker following Ronaldo's injury.

"I will not talk about our transfer policy until May or June, but with Ronaldo out of action we do need a fourth striker to join Alberto Gilardino, Alexandre Pato and Pippo Inzaghi," said Galliani.

"All the big clubs need four strikers and it is better to have an abundance of options than too few. Inter have a similar problem with Hernan Crespo not getting much space, but there is no alternative at this level."

Chelsea striker Didier Drogba, Arsenal's Emmanuel Adebayor, former AC Milan star Andriy Shevchenko and Lyon starlet Karim Benzema were all put to Galliani - and he didn't shoot them down.

"All four of them would fit the bill," replied Galliani.
