Milan draw up Balotelli replacement list

Milan are currently drawing up a list of potential replacements for Mario Balotelli, and could go to the Premier League to get their man.

Balotelli looks set to leave San Siro and join Liverpool, with the striker’s agent travelling to England to discuss terms with the Anfield outfit.

And Sky Sport Italia have claimed that Pippo Inzaghi’s men know who they want to fill the gap left by the Italy international.

Porto’s Jackson Martinez is the main target, but having just signed a contract extension with a €35m release clause, a move for the Colombia international seems unlikely.

As such, the Diavolo have a number of more realistic back-up options, all of whom play in the English top-flight.

Manchester United’s Javier Hernandez is top of the reserve list, with the Old Trafford side willing to listen to reasonable offers.

Whilst Spanish duo Alvaro Negredo and Roberto Soldado of Manchester City and Tottenham respectively, will also be targeted by Milan.
