Report: AC Milan target Sevilla manager Unai Emery

AC Milan will reportedly cut ties with Filippo Inzaghi at the end of the season and set their sights on Sevilla's Europa League-winning manager Unai Emery.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport via AS, AC Milan have been disappointed by Inzaghi's lack of progress in his first season as head coach and will look to move on from the legendary player and make a move for a manager with a proven track record.

Milan are looking to completely revamp the club and the squad in order to get back to their place amongst the elite in Europe and have allegedly singled out former Valencia and current Sevilla manager Unai Emery as the man to take the club back into Europe.

The Rossoneri are said to be incredibly impressed with the work Emery's been able to do with a low budget and his ability to consistently compete both domestically and in Europe with massive overhauls of players in the off-season.

In accordance with their determination to get back into Europe's elite, Milan could give Emery a carte blanche to sign whomever he feels can take the Serie A giants back on top.

However, Sevilla are keenly aware that Emery will be tempted by many clubs this summer and president Jose Castro is determined to tie the manager down to a long-term deal to head off the interest from abroad and ensure that the Basque coach remains in Andalusia for many years to come.
