According to Goal, the Rossoneri are working on a deal to sign the Belgian, and that while they are also considering approaches for Giannelli Imbula of FC Porto and Ever Banega of Sevilla, the former Everton man is their main target.
Milan have been improving steadily in the Italian top flight under new manager and former player Sinisa Mihajlovic, and have ironed out many of their early inconsistencies to embark on an encouraging run.

While the squad doesn’t require an overhaul, the midfield could do with some renovation. Keisuke Honda will leave at the season’s end if not before [L’Equipe], and Fellaini would provide fine competition for the likes of Juraj Kucka, Riccardo Montolivo, Andrea Poli, Antonio Nocerino and Giacomo Boneventura.
Goal note that Milan missed out on signing Geoffrey Kondogbia during the summer—when he swapped AS Monaco for rivals Inter Milan—and will surely see Fellaini as a player who could contribute in a similar way to the powerful Frenchman.
