Milan looking at Mario Balotelli again, as well as Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner.
Milan's shortcomings in the Champions League have sparked the search for strikers as Manchester City's Mario Balotelli comes into view for the summer.

Il Corriere dello Sport reports directors at the club are not impressed a team with Robinho and Zlatan Ibrahimovic leading the line failed to beat Tottenham.

And they are already planning ahead for next season with Balotelli first on the list.

He has long been linked with Milan, but City boss Roberto Mancini said on Monday his player is "happy" at Eastlands.

Balotelli is viewed as an alternative to Ibrahimovic, who has often struggled in big games this term.

And with Mino Raiola acting as the agent of both strikers, a move could take off.

Arsenal hitman Nicklas Bendtner is also on the horizon. Robin van Persie's return to excellent form has seen chances limited for the Danish striker.

Milan are said to be on standby for him too should he reconsider his future at the Emirates.
