AC Milan midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng has pleaded his club to sign Manchester City misfit Carlos Tevez.


Tevez’s future has been unresolved for some time, although the only certainty is that he will leave the Etihad Stadium.


A move to the Italian capital seems the most likely switch since the Argentina international’s relationship with manager Roberto Mancini broke down irreparably.


Milan’s all action attacking midfielder feels that his side needs a player like Tevez, though Manchester City have so far been unwilling to budge from their transfer demands.


The Rossoneri are searching for a new attacker after Antonio Cassano underwent emergency heart surgery and was ruled out for the season.


Former Tottenham midfielder Boateng was speaking to Corriere dello Sport when he was asked about Tevez and another Milan target, Maxi Lopez of Catania.


"Maxi [Lopez] plays well, but we need someone like Carlitos [Carlos Tevez]," he said. "However, I would take both of them."

The former Ghana international spoke of the need to replace Cassano, who he believes was crucial to AC’s attack.

"Cassano is truly a champion, and we are missing him," he continued. "You just have to see what he had done in this first month of the season.

"Robinho and Pato are just as good, but Antonio has different characteristics and therefore can offer different things to the team."

Tevez is still AWOL from Manchester City in Argentina and has been there since he was disciplined and fined by the Etihad Stadium club for refusing to warm up in a Champions League tie against Bayern Munich.
