Lopez interested in AC Milan move

Catania forward Maxi Lopez would be interested in a move to AC Milan, amid reports the Serie A champion will make an offer for him when the transfer window opens in January.

Milan is a striker short after Antonio Cassano was sidelined for at least six months when he had heart surgery last week.

Vice-president Adriano Galliani has said Lopez is one of the options the club is considering.

Lopez told Sky Italia: ”I’m flattered. We’ll see in January what happens. I’m trying to stay calm, then if in the future there’s the chance to move to one of the most important squads in Europe I would be really happy.

"But for the moment I’m trying not to think about it.”

Catania president Antonino Pulvirenti said Thursday he would consider selling the forward.
