The Gazzetta dello Sport are running the line that Milan have enquired at Paris Saint-Germain over the availability of Javier Pastore.
The 23-year-old made his name in Serie A during a spell with Palermo before completing a €40m switch out to high-spending PSG.
It is understood that the Rossoneri are considering a move to bring the Argentine back to Italy this summer.
The Gazzetta dello Sport suggest that Adriano Galliani has contacted former Milan colleague and current PSG sporting director Leonardo to begin possible negotiations for Pastore.
The San Siro side are seen as looking through the market for a playmaker to aid a reported planned change in formation for 2013-14 and have otherwise been paired with making a third go at re-signing Ricky Kaka from Real Madrid.
