There are reports Alessandro Matri isn’t Milan’s only option, as Palermo striker Abel Hernandez is also in the frame.
Last night Vice-President Adriano Galliani confirmed Massimiliano Allegri had requested a new centre-forward.
Qualification for the Champions League group phase has opened up fresh funds for transfers.
It would be a return for Matri, who grew up in the Milan youth academy before continuing his career elsewhere.
However, according to the Corriere dello Sport, Hernandez has emerged as a new candidate for the role.
He has different characteristics to Matri, as the Uruguay international is very fast and eager to leave Palermo following their relegation into Serie B.
Genoa have also confirmed their interest in Hernandez, although they expressed concern at the price of the operation.
