Gianluca di Marzio via MilanNews.it are reporting that AC Milan will work on a triple deal with Chelsea FC to sign Olivier Giroud for the attack, Hakim Ziyech to replace Hakan Calhanoglu at attacking midfield and Tiemoue Bakayoko to be the fourth midfielder replacing Soualiho Meite this summer. Giroud is expected to arrive for free, Ziyech will command a large transfer fee and Bakayoko could come a cut rate given his contract expires in a year.

Tutto Mercato Web are reporting that Milan will look to get a package deal on the three players hence are negotiating as one massive deal to boost the chances of pushing this through. The relations between the two clubs are good considering the deal for Fikayo Tomori getting through successfully.

Sky Italia via MilanNews.it and MilanNews.it are confirming the same reports. Each of the players would add experience to their positions. Giroud and Bakayoko would be back up players but Ziyech would be a starter.
