After having closed the arrival of Daichi Kamada on a free transfer from Eintracht Frankfurt, AC Milan want to try to reach an agreement with Chelsea for the transfer of Loftus-Cheek.
According to a report from MilanNews, there is still a distance between the offer that Milan have put forward and Chelsea’s demands, but the feeling is that an agreement over transfer fee could be reached at around €15m.
Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara want to react immediately after Ismael Bennacer’s injury which will keep him out until December, and they are using the excellent relationship they have with Chelsea to try and sign Loftus-Cheek.
The player seems open to the move and an agreement in principle over personal terms is close. The directors like the 27-year-old so much because he seems a perfect fit for the 4-2-3-1 which is much more similar to a 4-3-3, therefore without a pure attacking midfielder and instead a player who gives more coverage.
Milan know they need quality depth to be competitive domestically and in the Champions League in the 2023-24 season, so they are working ahead of time to try and secure reinforcements.
