Sky sources understand AC Milan are interested in signing Queens Park Rangers attacker Adel Taarabt on loan.
Taarabt is currently on loan at Fulham, but Rene Meulesteen is thought to be willing to end his stay early and send him back to QPR.
The news has alerted AC Milan with the Italian giants thought to have held a long-term interest in the Moroccan playmaker.
Reports coming out of Italy claim Milan are trying to tempt Fulham into parting with Taarabt by offering defender Cristian Zaccardo to the Craven Cottage club.
If Milan seal a deal for Taarabt, the former Tottenham youngster would join ex-Chelsea midfielder Michael Essien at the San Siro.
