MN: Ziyech not the only name as another Chelsea midfielder is of interest to Milan

By Oliver Fisher -

Another potential option to replace Hakan Calhanoglu has emerged and once again it is a Chelsea player, according to a report.

MilanNews writes how the Rossoneri management are looking for a playmaker who can take Calhanoglu’s place in the squad. Hakim Ziyech is a target but he is more of an attacking winger, though he can also act as a playmaker, but the importance of balance cannot be understated in Pioli’s 4-2-3-1 system.

Milan are on excellent terms with Chelsea and if the Blues were to let him go, Maldini and Massara would be available to welcome him. Another name is circulating too, as Mateo Kovacic could be an opportunity for Milan to strengthen the creative midfield department given that he may be available in a cut-price deal as he is now outside Chelsea’s plans.

The Croatia international, formerly of Inter, made 39 appearances for the Blues last season including 10 in the Champions League as Chelsea went on to win it for a second time.

  1. How is he out of their plans? He was an undisputed starter before his injury, season before that he was their player of the year. Sounds like a joke to me. 😀

    1. Yeah, they just give us every ‘news’ they found on internet. Most of them are nonsense and has nothing with logic. Like the news about Ramos. Its like when you have 5 euros in pocket but you go in market to buy something that cost 5000 euros. It just insulting our common sense.
