Milan are looking towards Cagliari star Radja Nainggolan to reinforce their midfield in January.
The Rossoneri have been dealing with an injury crisis and have concerns over the fitness levels of Kevin-Prince Boateng, Mark Van Bommel, Clarence Seedorf and long-term absentee Mathieu Flamini.
According to the latest reports in the Italian media, Coach Massimiliano Allegri hopes to pick from his former club.
Belgian international Nainggolan is only 23 years old, but has already made an impact on Serie A at the Stadio Sant'Elia.
Milan would like to bring him to San Siro on loan in January in exchange for Stephan El Shaarawy, who would find more first team football with Cagliari.
