Serie A giants AC Milan will switch their attention back to Florence this summer as they look to add an additional striker to their ranks.

The Rossoneri recruited the services of Andre Silva from Porto earlier in the month, but there are still keen on recruiting another marksman to their ranks.

Both Carlos Bacca and Gianluca Lapadula are due to leave San Siro in the summer, and as a result, Kalinic has popped up the Rossoneri shortlist, Calciomercato claims.

The Croatia international has cemented his place at La Viola over the past 24 months, netting 33 goals in 84 appearances in all competitions.

Fiorentina are currently said to value Kalinic at £26m, but Milan are hoping to reduce the sum further by offering midfielder Juraj Kucka as makeweight in the proposed deal.

Milan have made their intentions clear for the summer after having added the likes of Mateo Musacchio, Franck Kessie, Ricardo Rodriguez and Silva to their squad on a combined £70m fee.

Alvaro Morata and Andrea Belotti are the other names on their shortlist, but neither are likely to come on the cheap in the transfer window.
