Nizaar Kinsella via MilanNews.it is reporting that AC Milan are still interested in right winger Hakim Ziyech from Chelsea FC but notes that this would be a complicated deal. Between the high wages, the multiple remaining years on his contract and his large price tag it seems very diffucult for Maldini and Massara to pull this off.

Nicolo Schira is however reporting that Thomas Tuchel does not have Ziyech in his plans for the season and notes the player would like to leave Chelsea this summer. The player could be allowed to leave on loan which is intriguing for the Rossoneri as this is the type of deal that would work for them. Milan would like to take him on loan until 2023 with an option to buy. Also, the report adds that Milan could take advantage of the Growth Decree to lower the gross pay for him from 12 million euros to 9 million euros, if he were to remain on the same wages at 6 million euros net.
