Tottenham striker Peter Crouch is being linked with AC Milan.

Corriere dello Sport says Milan are eyeing Crouch as cover for Zlatan Ibrahimovic, with the Swede already suffering a new injury in recent days.

Crouch has a big reputation in Italy and has been described as Milan's bête noire following his crucial goal in Tottenham's 1-0 first-leg victory in last season's Champions League last-16 tie.

Milan would like to take the centre-forward on-loan for the season and are hoping to do business for £2-3 million.
