The 28-year-old is reportedly unsettled at San Siro and is said to be available either on loan or as a permanent transfer.
Italian international Nocerino has seen his career stall somewhat in recent months and is said to be keen to find a fresh start.
Chinese club Guangzhou Evergrande, coached by Italian hero Marcello Lippi, were also in the hunt for Nocerino but the player is keen to stay in Europe.
Nocerino is a Juventus youth product but spent much of his formative time with the Bianconeri being loaned out to other clubs.
He has played for Avellino, Genoa, Catanzaro, Crotone, Messina and Piacenza before getting his big break with Palermo in 2008. Nocerino joined Milan in 2011.
