The 24-year-old hit-man spent last season on loan at former club Atletico Madrid, and is now poised to complete a permanent return to Spain.
Jose Mari made 29 league appearances for 'los rojiblancos' last term, netting five goals in the process, but a permanent switch back to the Vicente Calderon failed to materialise.
Villarreal boss Benito Floro identified a pacey striker as his top summer target, and now seems to have found his man.
As well as Jose Mari, Floro is also keen to sign another Milan player, with defender Fabricio Coloccini, who was also on loan at Atletico last campaign, reported to be attracting his interest.
