CaughtOffside: Milan and Chelsea battling for Lyon star Cherki

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan and Chelsea have completed plenty of business together in the transfer market but they may now be about to do battle, according to a report.

According to the latest from CaughtOffside, Chelsea and Milan both want to sign Rayan Cherki from Lyon with the Blues ahead in the race and in direct contact with the Ligue 1 club.

There were some initial conversations that happened through intermediaries as per the source but the London club are now negotiating directly with Lyon, who are asking for €50m for the 19-year-old.

However, Chelsea believe they can sign him for around €40m even though Cherki has a contract until 2025. Milan have also shown an interest in him, though Chelsea are currently ahead in the running because of their greater financial power.

Last season, Cherki racked up 39 appearances for Lyon across all competitions, with five goals and six assists to his name playing mostly as an attacking midfielder.

  1. I was living in Lyon, people kinda hate him because he has such a bad character. If we can afford him, which I doubt, we need Zlatan to educate him haha

    1. But he’s probably not gonna play because he’s franco-alegerian like Adli is and you know how much he played

      1. What’s the explanation for Benacer playing then? Isn’t he also Franco Algerian? Where does glhe fit in your theory?

    1. Juro loves making fun of Milan like a Inter fan in disguise, its like he wants failure so he can brag in this blog about how much he hates the club

      whats wrong with you?

      1. “whats wrong with you?”

        Are you prepared to read a 20-page-long report? It would be easier to list the things that are “not wrong” with the kid. Can’t think of any though. 🙂

  2. I laugh, Italians teams that luvs to sell their players on a high price but luvs to buy on a cheap price. Mr boehly open ur eyes stand on ur set price for the naughty lukaku and squeeze out ur money from them. Just go all out for Cherki. Up Cherki and Chelsea or rather Chelski…..
