According to reports, AC Milan and Chelsea will meet to discuss the possibility of moving Hakim Ziyech.
Ziyech wants to switch from the Blues to the Italian league champions AC Milan during this summer’s transfer window, according to the Daily Mail. However, the £100,000 per week attacker will have to accept a wage reduction.
According to reports, Chelsea is willing to sell him for as low as £8.4 million, and manager Thomas Tuchel is content to let him leave because of his lack of tactical discipline.
According to the report, Milan has made the 29-year-old a top target, and a meeting with the Blues is now planned.
It was earlier reported that Chelsea had already notified the player that he was no longer needed for the next campaign.
Meeting with AC Milan for Ziyech
Given that Ziyech is available for less than £10 million, it appears that a transfer to the San Siro is doable within this window.
In 83 games for the London club, the left-footed winger has only managed to score 14 goals and provide 10 assists, falling short of expectations.
Milan, though, seems to be searching for a possible deal for themselves.
It makes sense to get rid of the Moroccan con man if Tuchel doesn’t like him. He has been training him to judge for a good 18 months as well.
Can Milan and Chelsea renew their commercial connection after Milan just acquired Fikayo Tomori and Olivier Giroud from Chelsea?
Sterling an improvement
Raheem Sterling, who transferred from Manchester City to Chelsea earlier in the transfer season, should offer something that many of the current Blues attackers have found difficult. That is a lot of ambitions, for sure.
The forwards at Stamford Bridge must score more goals, especially since there is still no reliable scorer in the striker position.
Unfortunately, despite his magical feet and vision, Ziyech hasn’t been contributing to enough goals.
