AC Milan are looking to sign Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Cesc Fabregas in January.

Zlatan has been linked with a sensational return to Europe since the past two months or so, after reports emerged that he isn’t too thrilled with life in the United States.

The veteran striker was initially touted to head back to Manchester United, but both Jose Mourinho as well as the forward himself denied those rumours, effectively killing the speculation.

Since then, the 37-year-old has been linked with a return to another one of his former teams: AC Milan.

Now, Milan News’ Antonio Vitiello has provided a huge update that adds substance to the Milan links. He has claimed that Zlatan’s agent, Mino Raiola, recently visited the Serie A club’s headquarters, for a meeting that lasted for four long hours.

Whilst other topics like the January transfer market solutions were discussed, the main topic of conversation was Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s prospective return to the San Siro.

Meanwhile, Diario AS (via Football Espana) have further claimed that Milan boss Gennaro Gattuso is eager to bolster his side’s midfield as well, and has identified Chelsea superstar Cesc Fabregas as a potential target.

The 31-year-old has fallen down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge thanks to Maurizio Sarri preferring Jorginho over the Spaniard. Further, the latter’s current deal is also set to expire at the end of the ongoing campaign.

The Italian outfit’s sporting director, Leonardo Araújo, is eager to land the former Barcelona man in January itself, with the report adding that contract with the player’s representatives has already been established.

These stories still seem to be in their developmental stages, but if true, the Rossoneri could be in for an unbelievable winter transfer window.
