Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti has confirmed that Barcelona’s Samuel Eto’o, Chelsea striker Didier Drogba or Arsenal’s Emmanuel Adebayor are his transfer targets for the close-season.
Palermo striker Amauri is also an option, although the Brazilian is expected to join Serie A rivals Juventus.
“One of the four. They are all perfect,” Ancelotti told La Gazzetta dello Sport when asked about his plans to strengthen his attack before next season.
“They are centre forwards with the characteristics needed to solve our problems. We need flexible forwards who can help the squad in defence too.”
Ancelotti indicated he would bring six or seven new signings to the San Siroas he seeks to improve on last season’s fifth place finish.
“That’s how things will be because some players will quit and there is a need for replacements,” he said. “But it won’t be a revolution. The foundation is solid and we’ll build the Milan of the future on it.”
Ancelotti refused to comment on whether Brazilian Ronaldinho remained a target.
“He’s a great champion and Milan always looks at champions,” he said. “But whether he’s coming is not a question to ask me.”
