Taye Taiwo's stay with AC Milan could be short-lived.

The Nigeria left-back arrived in the summer from Olympique Marseille, but has struggled to overcome Gianluca Zambrotta and Luca Antonini in the battle for a left-back spot.

Benfica have already approached Milan about Taiwo's situation, while Olympique Lyon were in contact over the weekend about bringing him back to France.

Milan hope to do business for around €6 million for the Bosman signing.
