AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has insisted Chelsea striker Didier Drogba will not be signing at the San Siro.

Sections of the Italian press have suggested Milan have an interest in the Ivory Coast international as a replacement for Antonio Cassano.

Drogba's current contract at Stamford Bridge expires next summer, and his future has been the subject of conjecture.

Galliani, though, told Corriere dello Sport: "We are covered in attack and hence, Drogba will not arrive.

"Cassano? AC Milan cannot guarantee a place to anyone. But Antonio will be very useful to Milan."

Hamsik

The Milan supremo went on to dismiss further speculation linking the club with Napoli midfielder Marek Hamsik.

He said: "We have never been interested in Hamsik, I'm happy if he stays in Napoli."

However, Galliani did hint Milan could make a move for Genoa midfielder Juraj Kucka.

He added: "Kucka? He's a Genoa player, but it is possible that he wear our shirt."
