Milan maintain interest in Drogba and Adebayor

July 7, 2008

Chelsea striker Didier Drogba and Arsenal forward Emmanuel Adebayor remain targets for AC Milan, according to the club's technical director Leonardo.

Both players have been linked with the San Siro but the Italian giants have yet to make a move - although that does not mean they have not ruled out future bids.

'It's no secret we're interested in signing a forward and are studying candidates,' said Leonardo.

'Drogba is a fine player and Adebayor is a player I really like. We are waiting for the right time to move.'

Meanwhile, Leonardo has reiterated there is 'no possibility' of Chelsea signing Kaka after the Stamford Bridge club were reported to be interested in the Brazilian.

'I can only repeat what we keep saying - there is no possibility of Kaka moving away from Milan,' Leonardo told BBC Sport.

'We have not received an official bid for him. He is very close to AC Milan and has a very, very good relationship with the club.'
