Multiple reports claim Milan are close to former Napoli midfielder José Sosa, now at Besiktas.
The Argentinian international signed a four-year contract with the Partenopei in 2010, but left after just one season in which he scored once in 24 Serie A matches.
Despite that record, Gazzetta dello Sport and Sky report that Milan are one step away from bringing the 31-year-old back to Serie A.
Having been named the Player of the Year in Turkey last season, Besiktas are thought to be asking for €8m, with his contract expiring in 2018.
