Milan's young star Riccardo Saponara has struggled to hold down a regular place in the first team since his move from Empoli last summer.

Saponara could be farmed out on loan to Parma in January according to Teleducato (via Football Italia).

It is a move that makes sense, since Antonio Cassano is struggling to find a teammate to regularly link with and Saponara's intelligence could work wonders in tandem with Fantantonio.

Milan would also benefit by seeing whether Saponara could adapt to Serie A and progress with regular minutes on the pitch at this level.
