AC Milan playmaker Kaka believes a player like Liverpool midfielder Steven Gerrard may be needed to help the Rossoneri return to the summit of Italian and European football.
The two have competed against each other in two Champions League finals, but Milan did not play in this year's competition and they are also on the verge of seeing city rivals Inter win a fourth successive Serie A crown.
Kaka believes someone like Gerrard would make Milan a very strong team again.
"I like modern football, I like players that know how to attack and defend," said Kaka.
"If it was up to me, I would sign someone like (Steven) Gerrard, who for me is a complete player.
"He can play in any position, as a playmaker, midfielder, right-sided midfielder and he would look good at Milan."
Kaka is well aware the Rossoneri must strengthen their squad if they wish to compete for silverware next season.
"A cycle is ending, a new one will begin," he said. "The time has come to refresh the squad.
"You can have a mix of experience and young players with the will to win."
Gerrard recently extended his contract with Liverpool, which will see the England midfielder remain at Anfield until June 2013.
