QUOTE
AC Milan president Silvio Berlusconi claims there is a "good chance" his club can sign Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor in the summer.

Adebayor was wanted by the Italian giants 12 months ago, but a deal failed to materialise and the Togo ace signed a new contract at the Emirates Stadium.

However rumours of a move away from Arsenal have resurfaced in recent weeks, with Chelsea having been linked with an end-of-season bid.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger admitted last week he would have no problem selling to a Premier League rival, but insisted Adebayor is part of his plans.

The former Monaco forward also revealed earlier this month that he will be staying with the club "100 per cent" next season, but Milan appear set to make a renewed attempt to sign the 25-year-old.

Berlusconi has confirmed the Rossoneri's interest in agreeing a deal and is positive about the prospects of persuading Adebayor to move to the San Siro.

"There is a good chance that we can get Adebayor," Berlusconi told the Italian media on Sunday night.

Meanwhile, Berlusconi revealed Milan will assess the future of Ronaldinho in the summer following the Brazilian's dip in form.

He added: "We will see at the end of the season. I still think he's a good investment."

I wouldn't mind him because I don't see us going for a better striker anyway. we'll probably end up with Toni.

Arsenal will rip us off? that's the management's problem!

I wish it's just a cover up and we're planning something else.

Seriously, this guy is not an answer.

I know he scores a lot but Arsenal create sooo many chances and the % of what he misses in games is just laughable, he really is not clinical.

It's either him or someone like Drogba/Toni

Consdering the age of the other 2 and there unpredictable form. I'd rather have Adebayour. I think there are better players out there but I don't see us going for anything better.

Plus I think he and Pato could work well together

I honestly believe if we can keep him happy Drogba would be a better signing compared to Adebayor.

Considering his age, I believe it would be a waste of money to buy him. And we can't always keep him happy, especially if he doesn't perform well for some reason or another

After what happened immediately following Chelsea-Barcelona, I'm suprrised anyone would actually consider wanting Didier Drogba at Milan. His behavior was beyond shameful.

I agree about Toni but not Drogba. I think he could do better than Adebayor, despite his age.

I don't think it's been decided yet but he could get a long suspension, yep.

Agreed. He's a treath to both the changing room environment and the club's public image. If I were the club directors I wouldn't even touch him with a 10 foot pole

Yeah, if we could keep him happy and all that. If he's not, not only will he play badly but cause internal problems for the team.

I just don't like the idea of getting him now. I think we should have gotten him when we sold Chelsea Sheva as part of the deal (when he still was not considered a big player there), I think now it's too late to spend money and waste the effort on him

I cannot believe we're actually going for the useless Adebayor? Certainly goes to show how low our expectations are!
