AC Milan have identified reported Manchester United target Marek Hamsik as their No.1 summer transfer target, it has been claimed.
According to La Gazetta dello Sport, the Rossoneri will have to pay €30 million to land the Napoli playmaker, who was instrumental in securing his side a place in next season's Champions League.
Sport.co.uk had previously reported that Sir Alex Ferguson had dispatched scouts to compile a report on the 23-year-old, although United's interest in the Slovakian appears to have cooled in recent months.
With 13 goals to his name last season, Hamsik is one of the most exciting talents on the continent and had initially been tipped as an eventual successor to Old Trafford legend Paul Scholes.
Speculation has been mounting that the 36-year-old will bring the curtain down on his illustrious United career at the end of the campaign, with Ferguson reportedly actively pursuing potential replacements.
The United boss thought to have has sights set on Inter Milan star Wesley Sneijder as the ideal man to fill Scholes' boots at Old Trafford when he does decide to depart.
