New boss Clarence Seedorf believes the Italy international is a perfect candidate for the right wing in his 4-2-3-1 formation and has instructed club chiefs to try and lure him to San Siro.
Milan had already attempted to sign Cerci last summer, but it was Adriano Galliani who pulled the plug on the deal at the time.
Everything suggests the two parties are again set to meet at the negotiating table, although the Rossoneri officials need to act quickly if they are to conclude the deal before Friday’s deadline.
Alessio Cerci has been one of league’s star performers this season, having managed 10 goals and 7 assists in 21 Serie A appearances.
He has in turn seen his name linked with a host of Italy’s top clubs, but it is perfectly clear interested sides will have to delve deep into their pockets if they are to prize the 26-year-old away from Stadio Olimpico.
