The agent of Alberto Gilardino has poured cold water on the prospect of the AC Milan striker moving to Fiorentina in a swap for Sebastien Frey.

Marcello Bonetto said: "I do not think this is likely and not because Frey is not a great goalkeeper who interests Milan, but because the Rossoneri, with the lack of strikers they have, I do not see how they can deprive themselves of leading forward like Gilardino."
