AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri has made contact with Juventus striker Alessandro Matri. Matri is up for sale at Juve and he's fielded offers from Napoli and AS Roma in recent days.

Gazzetta dello Sport says Allegri has also been in touch and urged Matri to wait until Milan know whether they are in the Champions League group phase.

If the Rossoneri can overcome qualifier opponents PSV Eindhoven, Allegri will get the green light from Milan's board to bid for Matri.
