Milan priced out of move for Adebayor

AC Milan accept they have been priced out of the market for Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor by the Gunners' 'impossible' valuation of last season's top scorer.

'The request for 45million euros (£35.8million) by Arsenal is an impossible request,' Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani said on the Italian club's website.

While the Togo international may, according to his agent, not be 'greedy', described as 'humble kid from the street' and 'in love' with Arsenal, Arsene Wenger has sent a clear message he has no intentions of letting Adebayor - or anyone else for that matter - hold the club to ransom over excessive wage demands.

Nevertheless, the Arsenal manager also knows there is no value in keeping an unsettled player whose focus is on something other than mounting a sustained title challenge next season.

The Premier League club are, according to Galliani, not willing to accept anything less than what they consider full market value for Adebayor, plucked from Monaco in a £7million deal 18 months ago and who smashed 30 goals last season.

Barcelona are also said to be in the hunt for the Togo forward, with president Joan Laporta looking to secure a big-name signing ahead of the club's referendum this weekend.

The Catalan giants would certainly have the financial muscle to test Arsenal's resolve with an offer nearer their asking price.

Wenger, though, would want guarantees of a replacement should Adebayor eventually cash in on his demand and leave, with both Blackburn's Paraguay striker Roque Santa Cruz and Newcastle striker Obafemi Martins, rated around £14million, likely candidates.

Having already completed the capture of promising young Wales midfielder Aaron Ramsey, Arsenal are expected to soon finally confirm the arrival of long-time target Samir Nasri from Marseille, while Portugal Under-21 international Amaury Bischoff is another who claims he is on his way to Emirates after German side Werder Bremen announced his departure.

However, one player now off the market is Spain forward David Villa, who pledged his allegiance to Valencia having impressed Wenger, among other English Premier League managers, at Euro 2008.

'I'm very grateful, I'm happy to be here,' Villa said. 'There are further years left on my contract and hopefully I'll extend my stay.'

'The president plans to keep the same team to please the fans in order to have a great team.'

Arsenal head off for their pre-season training camp in Austria at the end of July, and will return for the Emirates Cup - hosting Juventus and Real Madrid, as well Hamburg under former Tottenham manager Martin Jol - before completing their preparations with an appearance at the Amsterdam Tournament ahead of the Champions League qualifier on August 12/13.

By then, Wenger could have Czech winger Tomas Rosicky back in contention following his summer rehabilitation.
