The Milan full back spent time in England on loan, but lost his first team place after the arrival of John Gregory to replace Colin Todd.
On his return to Giuseppe Meazza, Daino was earmarked for a loan switch to Perugia - a move the player now wants to make permanent.
Daino could be one of a number of new faces at the club, with Roda goalkeeper Zelico Kalac also training at Renato Curi.
Kalac has already appeared for the club in a friendly match against Pesaro - and looks likely to make the move.
Another player being linked to Perugia is MLS star Tim Howard - who currently plays for New York/New Jersey Metrostars.
The 23-year-old goalkeeper is one of the hottest properties in the USA, but is probably only second on the wanted list behind Kalac.
Finally, coach Serse Cosmi has asked his board to launch a loan bid for relegated Verona's Leonardo Colucci.
Colucci is unhappy at the prospect of playing in Serie B, and Verona may choose to loan out the player for the season in the hope that they can bounce back and bring back the midfielder for 2003-04.
