Chelsea are still in the market for a winger after missing out on Raphinha and that should in turn free Hakim Ziyech to leave with AC Milan interested, a report claims.
According to Calciomercato.com, Raphinha will join Barcelona for a fee of €65million including bonuses. Chelsea meanwhile are defining the purchase of Raheem Sterling from Manchester City, but Thomas Tuchel wants the club to seize other opportunities for the right flank such as Bayern Munich’s Serge Gnabry.
Hakim Ziyech meanwhile is expected to leave despite the fact he is under contract at Stamford Bridge until June 2025. As per the source, the Premier League side are open to letting him depart on a loan with option to buy deal, which Milan would approve of.
Milan have already signed Junior Messias outright from Crotone, while Samu Castillejo has been allowed to join Valencia. Alexis Saelemaekers is not considered non-transferable, but no offers have been received that are considered to be up to par.
