AC Milan vice president Adriano Galliani has admitted his interest in Liverpool midfielder Alberto Aquilani.

The Italy international has been expected to leave Anfield all summer but has yet to make a move, with Fiorentina looking his most likely destination recently.

However, Milan are in the market for a midfielder following Andrea Pirlo's transfer to Juventus and Galliani told Gazzetta Dello Sport: "He's a midfielder who has the characteristics we're looking for so he could be of interest."

Galliani also ruled out moves for Real Madrid's Kaka, a former San Siro favourite, and Manchester City's ex-Inter Milan striker Mario Balotelli.

"Kaka's wage is impossible for an Italian club due to the tax system," he said.

As for Balotelli, Galliani added: "If someone comes in it will be a left central midfielder, not a striker."
