Milan are looking to sign Zenit St Petersburg's Axel Witsel after failing to recruit Geoffrey Kondogbia.
The Belgian, however, is also sought after by Juventus, and il Diavolo risk engaging in another costly mercato battle.
Witsel will not come cheap either, as the Russian team is cited by La Gazzetta dello Sport as asking for €30m for the player.
Milan's joint-CEO Adriano Galliani is also considering Italian alternatives for next season, such as Atalanta's Daniele Baselli and Roam's Andrea Bertolacci, though a formal offer has yet to be made.
