Atalanta are after Milan's Jose Mauri and have already met the player's agent, according to reports.
The Argentine-born 19-year-old joined the Rossoneri after his unfortunate adventure at Parma, but he may be too green for Sinisa Mihajlovic's club.
Mauri is a candidate to leave the team in January and Atalanta are trying to move early to secure the player.
According to Gianluca Di Marzio's website, representatives from La Dea held a meeting with the player's agent today in which they discussed the option of moving down to Bergamo in January.
