Milan are preparing a January swoop for Bayer Leverkusen and Germany winger Karim Bellarabi.
According to the Corriere dello Sport, the Rossoneri have set their sights on the right-sided attacking player.
Fresh funds will be available from December, as the takeover by Chinese investors is on track to be completed in mid-November.
Bellarabi has 11 caps and one goal at senior level for Germany.
He is currently out of action until 2017 with a muscular injury and only recently extended his Leverkusen contract to 2021.
The 26-year-old’s price-tag is believed to be in the region of €25m.
