Milan and Inter tussle for Toni

Luca Toni is suddenly hot property on the transfer market for both Milan and Inter, who want to make the most of the Genoa hitman's experience.

The veteran striker returned to Serie A from Bayern Munich a year ago, spending six months on loan at Roma before joining Genoa on a free transfer.

According to today's front page headlines in the Italian sports papers, the 2006 World Cup winner is on the move again.

Milan consider him to be the perfect understudy to Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who is not matched for height, strength or characteristics by anyone else in the Rossoneri squad.

Antonio Cassano has arrived from Sampdoria to reinforce the attack, but Ronaldinho is on his way out for a return to Brazil.

Inter are also said to be interested in giving Toni a shot at Champions League football this season.

Diego Milito continues to struggle with poor form and injury concerns, so a strong centre-forward would be an interesting addition to the side now run by Leonardo.

Genoa could release Toni on loan with an option to buy outright at the end of the season.

Inter are already in negotiations with the Marassi club after agreeing to buy out the remaining half of Andrea Ranocchia's contract for €12.5m.
