Arsenal defender Kolo Toure is hopeful he will be fit for next week's UEFA Champions League clash with Milan.

Toure is struggling with a calf injury he picked up in last week's first leg clash against Milan and he missed last weekend's draw with Birmingham.

The Ivory Coast international says he is likely to miss this weekend's Premier League game with Aston Villa, but is confident he will be fit in time to make the trip to Italy to face Milan and he believes Arsenal can dump the holders out.

Fingers crossed

"I should be a bit short for Saturday against Aston Villa, however against Milan, fingers crossed, I will be fine," said Toure.

"We are going there to qualify, Milan will be favourites in their stadium, however we have already won there heavily so they will be ready for us.

"We beat Inter 5-1 in the San Siro so we can do it to their fierce rivals."

Dream final
Toure also revealed that he dreams of tackling his brother Yaya of Barcelona in this season's Champions League final.

The 26-year-old would love the opportunity to face his younger sibling in the showpiece event and he admits Barcelona's star-studded side would provide a stiff test for Arsenal.

"It will be a great day for the Toure family, but big brother should win so everyone in the family could be happy," added Toure

"However I must say Barcelona have a formidable foursome - Henry, Eto'o, Ronaldinho, Messi, however we are not bad as well."
