Atalanta have reportedly entered talks with Milan and consider a return for Andrea Conti to replace injured Hans Hateboer at the Gewiss Stadium.
Sky Sport Italia reports Conti has emerged as a possible transfer target for the Orobici, who are searching for a right-back to replace the injured Dutch full-back.
The broadcaster claims the Bergamaschi have entered talks with the Rossoneri, as Hateboer will be out for about three months.
Gian Piero Gasperini needs a replacement and La Dea has been linked with a move for Davide Zappacosta, who seems more likely to join Fiorentina this month.
Conti arrives from the Atalanta academy, where he also made his Serie A debut, and the 27-year-old could return to the Gewiss Stadium four years after leaving for Milan.
Cagliari and Genoa are also interested in the former Perugia and Parma defender.
