AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has admitted it is virtually impossible that Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas will be playing for the Italian champions in the future.

I Rossoneri are looking to reinforce their midfield this summer, given the departure of Andrea Pirlo to Juventus and the uncertainty surrounding Gennaro Gattuso's future at the club.

We have never asked for Hamsik although we don´t rule him out. As for Fabregas, he is too expensive.

The 24-year-old Fabregas is considered among the reported targets of Milan.

"From here until August 31, Milan will buy a player that will be a left midfielder," Galliani told Gazzetta dello Sport. (Napoli winger Marek) Hamsik and Fabregas can play in that role.

"We have never asked for Hamsik although we don´t rule him out. As for Fabregas, he is too expensive."

Arsenal are understood to value Fabregas at £60m.

The Spain international is under contract with the London outfit until June 2014.
