Milan are hoping to ship Jose Ernesto Sosa off to Beijing Guoan or Hebei China Fortune, having paid €7.5m just six months ago.
The 31-year-old midfielder failed to make any impact since arriving from Besiktas in August.
He played a grand total of 395 minutes of football between Serie A and the Coppa Italia over seven appearances, benched in favour of 18-year-old Manuel Locatelli.
According to Calciomercato.com, the Rossoneri hope that one of the Chinese clubs will come in for his services.
Hebei Fortune and Beijing Guoan are thought to be interested, while his agent Favio Bilardo should be in Italy next week for a meeting.
Milan have already stated they need to sell before they can buy over the January transfer window, so Sosa is the favourite to leave.
