Zlatan Ibrahimovic is poised to make a mega-money switch from AC Milan to PSG, but who will the Italian club look at to replace him.
Here are 10 potential targets.
Robin van Persie
The Arsenal striker is wanted by both Manchester City and Milan's Serie A rivals Juventus. Could Milan steal a march on the Old Lady? Van Persie would be unlikely to cost over £20 million, and the glamour of Milan could appeal to him given his desire to leave Arsenal, making him one of the cheaper and most available options for the club.
Spanish striker Fernando Llorente had a super season for Athletic Bilbao last year, but did not get a look in for Spain at Euro 2012. He had a buyout clause of £30 million and may need a big move to convince Del Bosque he deserves to be his country's number one choice.
Argentine forward Higuain would be available from Real Madrid at the right price, and is proven quality. The 24-year-old scored 31 goals in 28 starts last season and would have no trouble settling in at the San Siro.
Porto's Hulk is interesting Chelsea, who wouldn't be happy if Milan stole him from under their noses. The Brazilian is close to leaving Porto, but his move has been on ice for a number of weeks. Milan would not have been able to afford him before, but with windfall for Zlatan and Thiago Silva coming their way, that would change.
Mario Balotelli is Italy's most wanted man, in a football sense of course. The striker enhanced his reputation at Euro 2012 and has spoken of his desire to one day play for Milan. It may be a case of bad timing though, as Mancini seemingly does not want to sell, and even with their new-found cash Milan may not be able to afford him.
Manchester City came close to selling Tevez to Milan in January, and the Rossoneri have been linked with re-igniting their interest. The stumbling block is that Tevez says he is happy at City. For how long? The Blues may be wise to cash in while they can.
Carroll is not a name we would have envisaged putting on this list, but two weeks ago Silvio Berlusconi's son declared Milan's interest in the striker, so impressed were they by his goal at Euro 2012. Liverpool are keen to move him on and a move to Milan could be a dream come true for him.
Colombian striker Falcao is among the most coveted goalscorers in world football, leading Porto and then Atletico Madrid to two successive Europa League triumphs. He would cost more than £40 million, but if Milan wanted to put all their eggs into one basket and go for it, he could be a spectacular addition to the side.
Bosnian striker Dzeko was a target for Milan before he went to City, and his reputation is still high after 20 goals last season. If City can't move on the often troublesome Tevez and Balotelli, it is likely Dzeko will be up for sale so they can bring in a new man, possibly Van Persie.
Milan have a history of raiding Brazil for top talent, with Kaka and Alexandre Pato springing to mind. Leandro Damiao is a striker with a big reputation who is wanted around the world. Tottenham have been linked with a bid, but may lose out if they don't act quickly.
Who do you think Milan will and should go for?
