AC Milan have revealed they have made Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor their sole transfer target and are trying to negotiate a deal with the London club, reports BBC Sport.

As well as Adebayor, 24, who signed a long-term deal in 2007, AC Milan have been linked with Spurs forward Dimitar Berbatov and Chelsea's Didier Drogba.

But AC Milan vice president Adriano Galliani told L'Equipe: "If Adebayor doesn't come then nobody will come.

"We are in negotiations but Arsenal are unwilling to sell at the moment."

The Rossoneri are keen to sign a striker following the departure of Alberto Gilardino to Fiorentina and a serious injury to Ronaldo.

And Galliani said at the beginning of June that Drogba, Berbatov, Barcelona's Samuel Eto'o and Stuttgart's Mario Gomez were all on Milan's wish-list along with Adebayor.
But now the Milan vice president has claimed the club will put all their efforts into convincing Arsenal to part with their 24-year-old Togo forward.

"One single player interests us and that is Emmanuel Adebayor," he added.

Arsenal are reluctant to sell their star forward, who last season found the net 30 times in 48 outings, and Adebayor has repeatedly committed his future to Arsenal.

Another sticking point for Milan could be the fact they have failed to qualify for next season's Champions League.

But Galliani was adamant the Italian club will continue to chase Adebayor until they are convinced they can do no more to persuade Arsenal to sell.

Should Adebayor be tempted to move to the Serie A club he will be reunited with French midfielder Matthieu Flamini who left Arsenal for AC Milan in May.
