AC Milan are locked in talks over Catania striker Maxi Lopez. The stalled negotiations for Manchester City rebel Carlos Tevez and Alexandre Pato's latest injury has forced Milan to return to the negotiating table for Maxi.

Mediaset says Tottenham and Fulham have also come in for the Argentine, but Milan still have an option for him this winter market.

Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani is discussing a loan deal with Catania sports chief Pietro Lo Monaco today.

Despite the Premier League interest, Maxi favours a move to Milan.
