    AC Milan have now won five in a row domestically for the first time since November 2011. 

    The recent optimism surrounding the club is warranted. They can now make a serious push for a possible Europa League spot with important matches against Roma and Inter coming up.

    With that being said, the summer transfer window looms right around the corner, and it will undoubtedly be a prime opportunity for the club to both upgrade a roster that needs plenty of help and give their supporters reason to hope.

    Here are the latest credible transfer rumours surrounding the Rossoneri.

    Cagliari have priced their defender Davide Astori at 10m, according to La Nuova Sardegna (via Football Italia).

    The ex-Milan youth player has been followed by Milan along with other big clubs in Italy, and could become a summer signing as the Rossoneri will look to bolster their defensive unit.

    According to Calciomercato.com (via Football Italia), Ajax has been poaching 15-year-old starlet Hachim Mastour, who currently plays in the Milan youth system.

    The Italian forward has been praised for his flair and fantastic dribbling ability, and has already been doing commercial work for Red Bull.

    According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Milan full-back Mattia De Sciglio would leave the club if asked to, as he isn't getting consistent space in his usual left-back role, and is worried that his starting spot on the Italian national team might be in jeopardy.

    Urby Emanuelson has carved out a niche on the left side, while Daniele Bonera has been used as a right-back recently in an effort to improve one of the shakiest defensive units in Serie A.

    According to The Sun (via Football Italia) Antonio Nocerino will be bought out by West Ham once his loan deal from Milan ends this summer.

    The Italian midfielder hasn't adapted with the Rossoneri since Zlatan Ibrahimovic was in the squad and seems to have found a new home in London.

    Simon Kjaer has told Danish media (via Football Italia) that he is flattered by recent reports which have linked him to Milan.

    The 25-year-old Lille central defender has played in Serie A with two clubs, Palermo and Roma, but moved on as he couldn't quite adapt to life with the Giallorossi.

    Expect Milan to be actively searching for defenders this summer. Kjaer could be a viable option.
