The 21-year-old defender, who would cost around £11 million, is likely to move to Catalunya depending on the approval of prospective Azulgrana coach Louis Van Gaal.
Coloccini was particularly impressive in the first half of the season, as Alaves boasted the best defence in the Spanish league at that time, though like the rest of the Basque side his form has tailed off in recent months.
"I would be very happy to play in the Camp Nou alongside Saviola," Coloccini said.
"Barcelona are one of the best clubs in Spain and the whole of Europe."
Although, he is technically the possession of Milan, Alaves have an option to buy the player for around £8 million in the summer so are likely to make two swift transactions to bring the perennial overachivers some welcome funds.
