Rossoneri CEO Adriano Galliani has drawn up a list of strikers he’d like to bring to the San Siro but moves for Radamel Falcao, Jackson Martinez and Mattia Destro have all been shelved due to financial constraints.

This has led the Serie A side to make Chelsea forward Fernando Torres their top target but failing that AC Milan see 23 year old Anfield man Borini as a ‘safe’ bet.

The former AS Roma man will struggle to retain a foothold in the Liverpool first team set-up and had been strongly linked with a permanent move to Sunderland, following a successful loan spell at the Stadium of Light last term, and Borini may well jump at the chance of a return to Italy.

Borini began his career as a trainee at Chelsea before moving to Italy to make a name for himself and a solid season at the Stadio Olimpico led to a £10.5m move to Liverpool in July 2012.

Brendan Rodgers didn’t get the best out of Borini in his debut campaign on Merseyside, the forward netting just once in 13 Premier League appearances, but looked a far better prospect whilst at Sunderland last year when he helped Gus Poyet’s side achieve a great escape from relegation as well as a run to the Capital One Cup final.
