Udinese president Giampaolo Pozzo is ready to tell AC Milan to bid big for star striker Antonio Di Natale.

Leggo Milan says the European champs remain keen on the Italy star, whose asking price has skyrocketed after a series of superb performances for club and country.

Milan had hoped to land Di Natale in January for £8 million, but Pozzo is now demanding £15 million for his star man, with Udinese sports chief Pietro Leonardi also urging his president not to sell.
