Milan face competition from city rivals Inter for Dalian Yifang star Yannick Carrasco, but only if Antonio Candreva leaves.
The Belgium international is eager for a return to Europe just a year after his massive €30m transfer to China.
According to Sportitalia, the Rossoneri have not yet decided whether to push forward and make a genuine proposal for Carrasco.
While they hesitate, Sky Sport Italia point out Inter are ready to dive in and intercept.
However, the Nerazzurri would only pursue Carrasco as a replacement for Candreva.
Agent Federico Pastorello confirmed that Candreva would consider other options if his playing time were to be cut back even more.
