AC Milan In Talks With Chelsea To Take Enigmatic Moroccan Attacker On Loan

The winger would be a huge boost for a position that has been lacking and he would take the load of Leao.

Gianluca di Marzio reported that AC Milan could bring in Hakim Ziyech from Chelsea FC on a loan to sort out their right winger issues. The Morocco international has Champions League pedigree and would be a massive upgrade on the current players.

A number of Chelsea sources have thrown their weight behind this story suggesting there might be something there as Todd Boehly shakes up the squad and management since his takeover.

Nizaar Kinsella reported that Ziyech was offered to Milan through an intermediary and that the player would be keen on the move.

CfcSheikh is reporting that a 5 million paid loan with an obligation set at 20 million euros is the current state of affairs.

Ziyech would make a magnificent addition as he too has some exemplary UCL credentials with that special Ajax side from a few years ago and last season with Chelsea lifting the title.

He has 14 goals and 10 assist for Chelsea in 83 games. He previously got 49 goals and 80 assists in 164 games for Ajax.
