Striker could make Serie A switch.
AC Milan are eyeing a surprise loan deal for Liverpool striker Andy Carroll.
The Italian giants’ owners want Carroll at the San Siro and have already discussed the possibility of the signing the 23-year-old with Liverpool when the clubs talked over Alberto Aquilani’s return to Anfield after his year in Milan, reports the Daily Mail.
Last week, Pier Silvio Berlusconi, son of the Rossoneri’s billionaire president Silvo, openly spoke of his admiration for Carroll, who he watched score as England beat Sweden 3-2 at Euro 2012.
It is thought that Berlusconi Snr. is seriously considering taking his son’s advice but cannot afford to meet Carroll’s £30 million valuation so will seek a cheeky loan deal for the former Newcastle striker.
A permanent move could be possible if Milan offload Manchester City target Zlatan Ibrahimovic or 28-year-old Brazilian Robinho.
Milan are undergoing a major overhaul of their ageing squad this summer and have already seen legends Flippo Inzaghi, Clarence Seedorf, Mark van Bommel and Gennaro Gattuso leave the club.
It is not yet known whether Carroll is a part of new manager Brendan Rogers’ plans for next season at Anfield.
