Malaga are showing interest in Paris Saint-Germain defender Diego Lugano, Le Parisien has reported.
Los Boquerons are somewhat short of options in the heart of defence and plan to add the Urguayan stopper to their ranks in January.
There is every chance the player will be available at a cut-back fee in January considering his desire to leave the club in search of first team football.
Diego Lugano has a contract until June 2014 at Parc des Princes, but given that he is not in first team plans of boss Carlo Ancelotti, it is highly unlikely the Saints will stand in his way.
The Uruguay captain joined the club from Fenerbahce in the summer of 2011, but never quite managed to prove his worth in the capital.
After making 12 Ligue 1 appearances last term, the centre-back has yet to feature for the Saints this season.
He is, nevertheless, still considered an important member of the national team and has scored 2 goals in 7 2014 World Cup qualifiers.
