AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has done little to dampen speculation linking the Italian giants with a move for Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor.
The Rossoneri have already raided the Gunners for France midfielder Mathieu Flamini and are now being linked with 24-year-old Togo international Adebayor.
Galliani told the Gazzetta dello Sport: "There is a rule that states that you can't make a private agreement with a player who is under contract with another club.
"I don't know whether a new striker will arrive from England, we will see.
"We have brought back a striker in Marco Borriello who scored 19 goals last season and I don't think that is less important than a signing.
"Then we have brought home goalkeeper Christian Abbiati and purchased wing-back Gianluca Zambrotta and a great midfielder in Mathieu Flamini.
"Now we will see if we can achieve our objective of signing another great striker."
Chelsea duo Didier Drigba and Andriy Shevchenko had previously been linked with summer moves to the San Siro, but Adebayor now appears to be the main target for Milan.
He joined the Gunners in January 2006 and has gone on to score 46 goals in 105 appearances for the north London club to date.
