Milan may be willing to sacrifice Luiz Adriano and sell him to Russia to balance their books, say reports.
While the Brazilian's performances have not disappointed, his playing time this season has been relatively limited, with 763 minutes played in Serie A against the 1339 of star striker Carlos Bacca.
The imminent return of Jeremy Menez and Mario Balotelli from injury may further limit Adriano's space, leading some to speculate that the Brazilian may be sold.
La Gazzetta dello Sport reports of an offer by Russian club Krasnodar, but the player was reportedly not enthusiastic.
However Luiz Adriano and Milan may be more positive should an offer come from CSKA Moscow, who could be looking for a striker after the likely departure of Seydou Doumbia.
It is worth noting that the Rossoneri's liquidity over January is limited, which puts them at a disadvantage in a number of possible deals. The sale of Luiz Adriano would allow them to broaden their options.
