Fabiano 'wants to join' AC Milan
Tuesday 14 July 2009
Luis Fabiano's agent has revealed the Brazil striker has set his heart on a move to AC Milan.
The 28-year-old frontman is wanted by the Italian giants and agent Jose Fuentes has revealed that the feeling is mutual despite Manchester City and Chelsea also reported to be interested in securing his services.
The two clubs have yet to agree a fee for a player who has scored 47 goals during 105 La Liga appearances for Sevilla.
"There has been some interest but the player only wants to join Milan," revealed Fuentes. "I am confident he will be a Milan player - 100 per cent.
"Luis Fabiano only wants to go to Milan. Now it is up to Milan and Sevilla to find an agreement.
"I don't know for certain whether there will be a meeting between Milan and Sevilla in the next few days, but I imagine another offer will be made this week."
Internazionale expect striker Victor Obinna to join Serie A rivals Napoli.
The Nigeria international struggled to break into the first-team picture during his first season at the San Siro last year and is wanted by the Naples club.
However, the exact terms of his move have yet to be agreed between the two clubs.
"There is enthusiasm from the player," confirmed Inter director Marco Branca.
"Napoli have expressed a willingness for a permanent transfer while we only want a co-ownership deal.
"There is still the official announcement lacking, but given the excellent relationship between the two clubs it cannot be excluded that a deal will take place."
Genoa are hoping to lure Argentina striker Rodrigo Palacio to Europe.
President Enrico Preziosi has revealed that the Serie A club are hoping to team the Boca Juniors star with compatriot Hernan Crespo at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris next season.
Veteran striker Crespo has already arrived on a free transfer from Internazionale.
"We have been following Palacio for eight months and he would allow us to make the step up in quality," revealed Preziosi.
"He is very strong and I like him and he wants to come here. The team is 95 per cent complete. We just need one or two players."
