Milan plan triple Chelsea swoop

Milan are attempting a triple swoop with Chelsea for Olivier Giroud, Hakim Ziyech and Tiemoue Bakayoko, claim Sky Sport Italia.

They have already agreed personal terms with Giroud, but Chelsea unilaterally activated their clause to extend his contract to June 2022.

The Rossoneri are only prepared to take the France international as a free agent, but there could be other ways around this.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio, the talks involve a massive triple swoop for Giroud, Ziyech and Bakayoko.

The toughest of the trio to secure is Ziyech, so he’d likely be on loan with an option to buy.

The 28-year-old Morocco international was only purchased from Ajax las year for €40m, contributing six goals and four assists in 40 competitive games.

He could benefit from a loan spell at San Siro, especially as the Rossoneri are in the Champions League next term.

As for Bakayoko, this would be a return after his experience with the Serie A giants in 2018-19.

He also spent this season in Italy on loan at Napoli, who did not want to make the move permanent.

Bakayoko’s contract with Chelsea only runs to June 2022, so he’d be available for a relatively small fee.
