The Serie A club are desperate to give their fans some positive news after Carlo Ancelotti's departure for Chelsea and Kaka's impending exit from the San Siro.
The Sun reported that AC Milan offered 25 million pounds for the Arsenal striker last summer but the bid was turned down. Their valuation has decreased after a mediocre season from the Togo international. Adebayor netted 16 times last term, which was a huge disappointment after his 30-goal return the season before.
AC Milan were interested in Didier Drogba also, but the striker is to be offered a new deal by Chelsea. Drogba, 31, is likely to agree a three-year contract next month.
