The North London side badly lack goals this season and whilst Emmanuel Adebayor has recently repaid the faith placed in him by newly appointed boss Tim Sherwood the likes of Roberto Soldado and Erik Lamela are still showing no signs of scoring on a regular basis.

Indeed with Jermain Defoe apparently set to join MLS side Toronto FC there is an added reason to look to possible alternatives though it would perhaps be a surprise if Italian international Matri would be looking to leave the San Siro having only just returned to the club last summer.

The 29 year old former Juventus man hasn’t been all that impressive for the Rossoneri, netting just once in 15 Serie A fixtures and the return to fitness of Stephan El Shaarawy may well lead to a more limited role in first team matters.
