Schalke 04 defender Marcio Rafinha could move to AC Milan before the transfer window closes next week.
The Rossoneri may step up their interest in Rafinha if Massimo Oddo leaves the San Siro.
Juventus and Barcelona are also interested in signing the 23-year-old who has made more than 150 appearances for Schalke.
Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani said recently: "At this moment in time our market is closed but we would look to buy a player if Oddo were to leave Milan.
"However, we will not be selling Kakhaber Kaladze."
