Sulley Muntari looks set to quit the San Siro in January with talks scheduled between the player's representatives and the Nerazzurri set to take place over the next couple of weeks.
Aston Villa, Tottenham Hotspur and Merseyside duo Liverpool and Everton are the Premier League clubs who have registered an interest in the Ghana international, although the player's chief representative Frank Schreier also suggested that their is strong interest from Spain. However, a return to England is the former Portsmouth man's preferred destination.
Muntari, 26, moved to Portsmouth in 2007 for a fee of £7 million and was signed by current Spurs boss Harry Redknapp, who is thought to have the edge in acquiring the powerful midfielders signature in the January window.
The player has fallen out with Rafa Benitez and the Spaniard looks set to cash in on the Black star midfielder as he needs to generate money to fund his own transfer activities in January.
Liverpool and Everton are keen on a quality signing to kick-start their poor starts to the season, whilst Aston Villa are looking for cover as captain Stiliyan Petrov is set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines. Tottenham on the other hand are looking for reinforcements as they look to challenge for the league and Champions League.
Schreir was quoted as saying "It could be that he will leave in the January transfer window, we have to arrange a meeting in the next few days in Milan to discuss his future, and then we will know the conditions of a transfer.
“There has been contact from the Premier League, but also in Spain. But for Sulley a return to England and the Premier League is definitely a possibility. I will not speak directly about the clubs involved, but it is the ones who have followed him previously.”
Muntari would likely command a fee in the region of £8 million, although the player would be keen on a short term loan deal, should the terms on a permanent deal not get reached. Muntari was used as a squad player last season under former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho as II Serpente secured a historic treble and also scored in Ghana's quarter final match against Uruguay at the World Cup.
