AC Milan’s interest in signing Hakim Ziyech from Chelsea cannot be considered completely dead in the water as things stand, a report claims.
PianetaMilan mention a report from The Athletic that claims Chelsea want to thin out their squad in the three weeks until the end of this summer transfer market and Ziyech is among the players who could follow Marcos Alonso, Malang Sarr and Timo Werner out of the exit door.
Milan therefore still have the chance to be able to sign the Moroccan and perhaps with more economically advantageous conditions too, because the Blues would be willing to sell him for €10m. Paolo Maldini could give it some thought provided, however, that two conditions are met.
The first condition is that Chelsea would have open to a sale via a dry loan or on a loan with option to buy, because Milan must channel their remaining economic resources for this summer on a defender and a midfielder.
The second condition is that a player must leave in attack. Brahim Díaz could return to Real Madrid a year early, or Alexis Saelemaekers could be sold, but both solutions seem unlikely at present.
