Drogba: Interesting Milan
Milan have not ruled out the possibility of making an approach for Didier Drogba and Emmanuel Adebayor.
Both players have been heavily linked with a summer move to the San Siro, although the Serie A giants are yet to make an official approach for either.
Chelsea striker Drogba has been a long-term target for the Rossoneri, while Arsenal hit-man Adebayor is a reported target for a number of clubs - despite the Gunners' insistence that he is not for sale.
Despite neither player having stated their desire to leave their present employers, or an approach for their services having been made, Milan's technical director Leonardo confirmed that the African duo remain high on the club's wish list.
"It's no secret we're interested in signing a forward and are studying candidates," said the Brazilian.
"Drogba is a fine player and Adebayor is a player I really like. We are waiting for the right time to move."
Meanwhile, Leonardo reiterated Milan's stance concerning Chelsea's reported pursuit of World Player of the Year, Kaka.
"I can only repeat what we keep saying - there is no possibility of Kaka moving away from Milan," he told the BBC.
"We have not received an official bid for him. He is very close to AC Milan and has a very, very good relationship with the club."
