Milan directors Paolo Maldini and Zvonimir Boban are expected to hold talks with Eintracht Frankfurt over signing Ante Rebic permanently.
Rebic was signed in the final days of the summer transfer window, but found it difficult to break into the Milan starting XI at the beginning of the season.
However in recent weeks Rebic has nailed down a starting berth for the Rossoneri, and has repaid the club with some impressive displays.
Only left-back Theo Hernandez has scored more goals this season than Rebic, however the Frenchman has more than double the amount of minutes on the pitch.
Calciomercato.com state that Milan are now convinced with the Croat and directors Maldini and Boban will hold talks with their counterparts at the Bundesliga side to thrash out a deal for Rebic.
Rebic was signed on a two-year loan deal, with striker Andre Silva going the other way, however due to the timing of the negotiations, no deal was struck pertaining to a set price in the case that either side wanted to keep the respective players.
The website suggests that Boban and Maldini will aim to agree upon a fee with Frankfurt in order to keep Rebic at San Siro.
