AC Milan are refusing to give up in their efforts to land Seville striker Luis Fabiano.
The Rossoneri have already seen one bid for the Brazil international dismissed out of hand by his current employers.
That approach is believed to have fallen some way short of the buy-out clause in the players contract and Sevilla are reluctant to part with the forward for less than they feel he is worth.
While refusing to be held to ransom in their efforts to prise Fabiano away from the Spanish giants, Milan executive president Adriano Galliani admits the Italians are still hopeful an agreement can be reached.
"We made an offer that we considered to be correct," said Galliani on Fifa's official website.
"If the Sevilla president (Jose Maria Del Nido) considers our €14million (£12.1m) offer to be ridiculous, lucky him.
"The negotiations will continue even though there is a gap from the asking price and our offer. We shall see."
