AC Milan are locked in talks with Carlos Tevez's minders.

Milan are hoping to sign the Manchester City rebel in January.

Sky sources report Kia Joorabchian flew to Milan on Thursday and met with Milan chief executive Adriano Galliani.

The Rossoneri are keen to bolster their attacking options with Alexandre Pato and Antonio Cassano absent - and Tevez could be the man to fill the void when the transfer window reopens.

AC Milan are reportedly willing to pay a fee around £25million, a reduced transfer figure from the £40million price tag City placed on Tevez's signature last summer.
