AC Milan are hoping to land a coup in January to save their season with thoughts turning to former Inter Milan man Wesley Sneijder, according to Corriere dello Sport.
Sneijder, who spent three-and-a-half seasons with Inter, is currently employed at Galatasaray under Roberto Mancini.
Milan are struggling in 12th place in Serie A this season and coach Massimiliano Allegri's job is under intense scrutiny.
However, a fresh boost in the winter transfer window in Sneijder could provide the required tonic for Allegri, whose side have won just thrice in 12 league games.
Sneijder is contracted at Galatasaray until 2016, while Milan could be tempted into selling Mario Balotelli and Stephan El Shaarawy to make room for the Dutchman.
There is speculation that Liverpool are interested in El Shaarawy, though Milan will only be selling the 21-year-old for a relatively large transfer fee.
Sneijder is currently sidelined with injury for Galatasaray, but has scored four goals in nine Super Lig games already.
Milan are also understood to be interested in Paris Saint-Germain striker Ezequiel Lavezzi, though Sneijder will undoubtedly represent a coup given his stature in European football.
