Shocker: AC Milan target Liverpool flop Carroll

Younger Berlusconi is an admirer of the towering striker

England star Andy Carroll is a target for AC Milan, according to the Mirror.

The Liverpool striker apparently caught the eye of Pier Silvio Berlusconi - who is the son of Milan's owner Silvio Berlusconi and has involvement in the club's transfer policy - with his towering headed goal for England against Sweden at Euro 2012, it said.

Berlusconi junior sees the big Geordie as part of a shake-up of the Milan squad which has already seen veterans such as Clarence Seedorf, 36, and Mark van Bommel, 35, moved on, according to reports.

Milan's current frontman, Swedish star Zlatan Ibrahimovic, will be 31 later this year.

“This is a new era for Milan," said the younger Berlusconi. "We will continue to get younger while maintaining the culture. Milan still has its superstars.

“As a future target, I’d like Andy Carroll.

“I must admit that for his body build, and after seeing his header in the Euros, I would like to have Carroll at Milan.”

Carroll, 23, struggled to make an impact at Anfield following a record £35 million move from Newcastle in January 2010.

But he began to justify that price-tag in the latter part of last season, playing his way into England's party for the European Championship.
