AC Milan coach Massimo Allegri remains optimistic of bringing Manchester City's Carlos Tevez to the San Siro as speculation over the striker's future rumbles on.
Milan have renewed their interest in the Argentinian despite pulling out of discussions with City earlier this month.
Tevez's future remains up in the air, with the Rossoneri's neighbours Inter and French giants Paris St Germain also in the race for his signature.
The 27-year-old appears destined to leave Manchester, with manager Roberto Mancini previously insisting it would be 'impossible' for him to play for City again following the fall-out from their bust-up in the UEFA Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich in September.
Asked about the out-of-favour striker, Milan boss Allegri told Sky Italia: "Am I optimistic over Tevez? I'm always optimistic in life."
He added of the club's transfer ambitions this month: "We feel good. The club have a good knowledge of how to move.
"We have another week to evaluate what we are going to do."
Speculation suggests Milan are still lining up a swoop for Catania's Maxi Lopez if they fail to snare Tevez, despite reports the striker has already agreed to join Fulham.
