Sassuolo midfielder Stefano Sensi is an option for Milan in January after Lucas Biglia was ruled out for four months.
Biglia has struggled with a number of injury problems, but few expected his muscular tear to be this serious, so the club has to seek a replacement on the transfer market.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the favourite target is Sassuolo talent Sensi, who has already shown he can work in a 4-3-3 formation as well as 3-5-2 and 4-4-2.
The 23-year-old has provided two assists in seven Serie A appearances this season.
His performances have impressed enough to earn a call-up to the Italy squad for the Nations League match against Portugal and friendly with the USA.
