Arsenal and Chelsea have been put on red-alert after reports AC Milan are willing to sell Alexandre Pato.
Both Arsene Wenger and Andre Villas-Boas are thought to be admirers of the Brazilian and would be open to purchasing him.
Italian publication Studio Sport are reporting that the Serie A champions have decided to cash in on Pato in the transfer window – opening the door for a move to Emirates Stadium or Stamford Bridge.
Wenger is on the lookout for quality to add to his threadbare strike force and Pato would fit into the system used at Arsenal well.
Similarly at Chelsea, Andre Villas-Boas is looking for quality young singings to revamp his ageing squad and the 22-year-old Pato certainly fits the bill.
The Brazil star has been frustrated with a lack of starts in recent weeks and is now said to have lost patience.
Rossoneri manager Massimo Allegri has preferred to use Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Robinho as his first choice strike pair up to now, with Pato being used as an impact sub.
Studio Sport have reported that Milan officials are set to meet with the player’s representative tomorrow and he could become available as early as then.
Arsenal and Chelsea will have to fight off the advances of PSG to land the former Internacional star.
The French side have just appointed former AC boss Carlo Ancelotti as their new manager who is well known to have a close relationship with Pato.
