The Serie A title challengers are in the market for a new centre-back after Simon Kjaer was ruled out for the rest of the season with a knee injury.
According to The Sun, Milan have identified Ake as a potential target in this month's window and they will consider making a loan enquiry.
However, the report adds that the Italian giants may struggle to persuade City to let the 26-year-old leave, with the Premier League leaders keen to keep hold of the Dutchman.
Ake, who moved to the Etihad Stadium for around £40m in August 2020, is considered as City's fourth-choice centre-back, though he has been able to make 14 appearances across all competitions this campaign. body check tags ::
