Report: Chelsea’s pursuit of €40m winger could help Milan land major attacking target

By Oliver Fisher -

Chelsea’s transfer plans could help AC Milan land their main attacking target in Hakim Ziyech, according to a report.

It is well known that Milan are on the lookout for opportunities to potentially strengthen the right side of the attack given that Alexis Saelemaekers and Samu Castillejo – while both system players – do not guarantee goals and assists in large quantities.

According to Andrea Longoni (via Il Milanista), Milan actually have Domenico Berardi of Sassuolo on their wish list as a potential option to bolster the right flank, given he amassed 25 goal contributions last season in the league alone, with 17 of those goals.

Sassuolo are asking for €40m which is too much for Milan, but this is where things may fall into place as Chelsea are also thinking about the Italy international as an option for their attack. With the purchase of Berardi, the Blues could therefore be more open to letting Ziyech leave, who is a major target for Milan.

    Pretty sure Ziyech would cost around €40 million so how could they not afford Berardi but afford Ziyech? If Milan have to choose I’d prefer Berardi. He could be the face of Milan!

        What makes you think that? Chelsea aren’t going to risk another Tomari situation.

    Ziyech on loan ok, but about the salary? 😂

    30 miliona Ikone from Lille..Berardi is zero for Icone

    So we’d rather go foreign yet again… always the same with current Milan. Berardi proven in serie A in his prime, consistent, 40m. Ziyech good at ajax bad at chelsea, unknown in serie a, also 40m… we choose foreign, it’s really disgusting. We are the new inter boys…. get used to it. No longer can we hate on intermilan anymore.

    ohh the loan with option/obligation scheme things…

    it would be ideal to bring berardi instead. but milan circumstances won’t allow that easily huh. well, at least there still a month, the situation might change for a surprise (thats what i hope for)
