Milan are reported to be in talks with Manchester City for Alvaro Negredo, who could well be loaned out.
The Rossoneri are on the search for a striker after agreeing to sell Mario Balotelli to Liverpool for €20m (£16m) this week.
Many names have been suggested, including Roma’s Mattia Destro, Chelsea outcast Fernando Torres and Porto man Jackson Martinez.
According to Calciomercato.com the latest option is Negredo, who is thought to be enthusiastic at the idea of joining Milan.
Manchester City would be prepared to send him out on loan or at a relatively low price, considering he won’t be able to play until late October after surgery on a fractured metatarsal in his foot.
The Spaniard has fallen down the pecking order at City behind Edin Dzeko, Sergio Aguero and Stevan Jovetic.
Negredo only made the move from Sevilla to Manchester City in 2013 for €25m.
He celebrated his 29th birthday this week.
