The Rossoneri have watched as Obodo asserts his claim to be one of the best up-and-coming players in Serie A.
Already a firm favourite at Perugia, Obodo has been a virtual ever-present in the league, and his passing ability and partnership with Italian international new-boy Fabrizio Miccoli have brought him into the public eye.
Milan are keen to sign Obodo, but preliminary talks with Perugia supremo Luciano Gaucci suggested that it would be no easy task to prise the midfielder away.
There are suggestions that Perugia may be tempted by an offer that would see Milan buy the player outright, but loan him back for a season while he continues to progress.
However, Juventus are also ready to compete with Milan for the player - so Perugia are well aware they need not rush any decision.
