Milan are back in negotiations for Chelsea creative midfielder Hakim Ziyech, according to Sky Sport Italia, and he could arrive on loan.

The 29-year-old Morocco international has been repeatedly linked with a move to San Siro, but this time it might actually happen.

Born and raised in the Netherlands, he plays in the trequartista role behind the strikers, which is one of the positions Milan need reinforcements to compete with Brahim Diaz.

His contract runs to June 2025, but Sky Sport Italia transfer expert Gianluca Di Marzio claims Ziyech has now put in a transfer request and is eager to move on after two seasons at Stamford Bridge.

The version of events given by Calciomercato.com is that Ziyech’s agents proposed him to Milan, with Chelsea open to a loan for €6m with option to buy.

He scored eight goals and provided six assists in 44 competitive games for Chelsea this season.

Ziyech has struggled for consistency in the Premier League and could potentially be available on loan with an option to buy at the end of the season.

There are also some concerns over his salary, worth over €6m per season.

  1. The one and only position we need strengthening

    Although i don’t really like this one, he’d be ok too

    I hope they secretly work on Berardi

  2. @NT.

    That’s where Tuchel has been deploying him but he’s predominantly operates centrally. Still, it would be great having a player who can play in two critical positions where Milan need better players.

  3. Hope is just some one more stupid ‘silly season’ rumour. CDK is so much better and useful player than this fellow… well, let’s see.

  4. Any player can get linked to Milan, but there is no money to make this a reality. Red Bird CEO Cardinale still has not raised the money. Like Inter, it looks like the dynasty could have lasted one season.

  5. Signed by which management and with what money?
    ACM has no management and no money.

    The Scudetto was a one hit wonder, expect another Banter era.
