Gianluca di Marzio via MilanNews.it is reporting that Chelsea FC attacking midfielder Hakim Ziyech is at the top of AC Milan’s list to replace Hakan Calhanoglu following his exit at the end of his contract. He notes that the negotiations are broad and could include other players.

Sport Mediaset via MilanNews.it are reporting that Chelsea will not allow the player to leave cheaply as he just arrived from Ajax last season for 40 million euros but has struggled to make an impact despite the side winning the Champions League . Milan will likely propose a loan with an option to buy the Morocco international.

Gazzetta dello Sport via MilanNews.it are reporting that Ziyech’s versatility to play as a winger or attacking midfielder draws Milan in as they recruit for both positions. The player is experienced as he is 28 years old and has played in the Champions League for years. The note that he currently has a salary of 6 million euros per year.

The player scored 6 goals and provided 4 assists in 39 games across all competitions last season.
