AC Milan held more talks with Udinese last week over a deal for Italy star striker Antonio Di Natale.

The former Empoli man is emerging as the hottest attacking talent in Serie A and Milan representatives were again in negotiations with their Udinese counterparts last week over the forward.

Udinese are reluctant to sell in January, but Milan could take an option on Di Natale ahead of welcoming him to the San Siro at the end of the season.
