Liverpool striker Andy Carroll has been identified as a transfer target by the son of AC Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi, who has urged his father to pull off the shock signing of the summer. Tall order: Berlusconi Jr. wants to convince his dad to sign Carroll for Milan (Picture: Getty Images) Italian media mogul Pier Silvio Berlusconi, who is the president of Mediaset – the holding company that owns AC Milan – has acted as a consultant on the Rossoneri’s transfer business in recent years, as the club seek to replace their ageing stars with a new wave of young talent. Milan have continued their squad overhaul this summer with the likes of Filippo Inzaghi, 38, Clarence Seedorf, 36, Mark van Bommel, 35, and Gennaro Gattuso, 34, all leaving the San Siro on free transfers. However, while a selection of legendary stars have already left, Milan are yet to splash the cash on any big name replacements, instead favouring the likes of Riccardo Montolivo and Bakaye Traore, who have both arrived on free transfers. Yet Berlusconi Jr. believes Milan should get the cheque book out this summer, and start with a deal for Liverpool’s £35 million powerhouse Carroll, who impressed for England at Euro 2012. ‘This is a new era for Milan. We will continue to get younger while maintaining the culture. Milan still has its superstars. As a future target I’d like Andy Carroll,’ Pier Silvio Berlusconi announced. ‘I must admit that for his body build, and after seeing his header in the Euros, I would like to have Carroll at Milan.’ The news is unlikely to win favour with many Milan fans, with Carroll’s infamous, powerful, aggressive approach a far cry from the technical, stylish football the club love to play. Indeed, one fan took to Twitter to vent his frustration simply tweeting: ‘Carroll to Milan? Is he mad?’ Liverpool fans were more sympathetic though, with one adding: ‘I’d bite their hand off!’
