Milan want Liverpool striker

Liverpool striker Andy Carroll is a transfer target for Serie 'A' giants AC Milan, according to The Sun.

Pier Silvio Berlusconi, son of Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi, helps the Italian club as a transfer consultant, and the media magnate revealed that Milan are interested in bringing the England forward to Italy.

Carroll started one match for England at Euro 2012, against Sweden, and scored a thumping header that caught the eye of the Milan transfer guru.

Berlusconi said: "As a future target I'd like Andy Carroll. I must admit that, for his body build, and after seeing his header in the Euros, I would like to have Carroll at Milan."

The Italian giants are undergoing something of a transition this summer, as several of their older players are moved on. Clarence Seedorf has already departed for Brazil, while Mark van Bommel has returned to Holland and PSV Eindhoven.

"This is a new era for Milan," said Berlusconi. "We will continue to get younger while maintaining the culture. Milan still has its superstars."

Carroll was a £35million signing from Newcastle last January, and the target man endured a difficult start to his Anfield career. But after a strong finish to the season, and a solid Euros campaign under Roy Hodgson, Carroll could be set to take centre stage at Liverpool next season.
