Novara are in talks with AC Milan over two loan signings.

Stephan El Shaarawy and Mattia De Sciglio are on the radar of the Serie A minnows.

El Shaarawy has found very little space at San Siro since joining and has also been linked with a return to Genoa, but Novara are the latest option for the Italian Under-21 international.

Defender De Sciglio had his first start in the Champions League during last night's 2-2 draw with Viktoria Plzen.

He too could join Novara on loan for six months to develop his skills.
