Milan are looking to loan Amadou Diawara from Napoli to replace Lucas Biglia, according to reports, but it needs the OK from Carlo Ancelotti.
The Rossoneri have lost Biglia and Giacomo Bonaventura to long-term injuries, while Riccardo Montolivo is out in the cold.
While technical director Leonardo would like to address that in January, the club is still awaiting a judgement from UEFA on Financial Fair Play.
According to Tuttosport, the solution could be to loan Diawara from Napoli for six months.
The 21-year-old has made just four Serie A starts so far this season, so could well agree to the move if he would get more playing time.
However, Coach Carlo Ancelotti would have to sign off on the move.
