Milan plot major striker move

Ancelotti hopes to sign Drogba, Eto'o, Adebayor or Amauri

Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti has set his sights on securing one of Didier Drogba, Samuel Eto'o, Emmanuel Adebayor or Amauri.

Ancelotti is keen to bolster his side after it finished the season fifth in Serie A, 21 points behind champions Internazionale.

Chelsea's Drogba has been persistently linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge after he confessed his desire to quit the club in an interview with France Football magazine shortly after former boss Mourinho's Stamford Bridge exit last September.

Barcelona forward Eto'o, meanwhile, is reportedly unsettled at Camp Nou and looks set to part company with the Primera Division club in the summer.


Amauri, however, is understood to be on the on the brink of joining Juventus, while Adebayor recently expressed his desire to remain at Arsenal.

But Ancelotti, who brought Mathieu Flamini to the San Siro from The Gunners earlier this month, insists he will purchase one of the aforementioned strikers.

"We will return next season to win Serie A," he said in Gazzetta dello Sport.

"We will sign one of Drogba, Eto'o, Adebayor or Amauri. All of those players have perfect characteristics.

"There will be new names at the club, but it will not be a revolution because the basis of the group is already solid."
