Fabrizio Romano claims the Chelsea attacker is “absolutely open to joining the club” and is eager to play for European powerhouses.
Hakim Ziyech, an attacker for Chelsea, is enthusiastic about making the switch to leading Serie A powerhouses AC Milan this summer, according to Italian writer Fabrizio Romano.
According to the renowned transfer expert, the two teams have spoken about a possible transfer. On July 2, Fabrizio Romano tweeted the following in the following way:
Since the previous week, AC Milan has been in close touch with Chelsea regarding Hakim Ziyech. Milan is becoming more certain as Ziyech is completely willing to join the team.
“Chelsea and Milan are talking about of the likely recipe of the arrangement.”
Hakim Ziyech transferred from Dutch superpower Ajax to Chelsea in the summer of 2020 at an estimated cost of €40 million. However, under Thomas Tuchel’s leadership, the Moroccan striker was unable to secure a berth in the first team as is normal.
During the 2021–22 Premier League season, Ziyech played in the league on a limited basis. The 29-year-old forward participated for the Blues in the league, scoring four goals and providing three assists.
In the event that he completes his transfer, Hakim Ziyech will be the second attacking import from the Premier League to the San Siro. The Rossoneri are soon anticipated to announce their pursuit of free agent Belgian forward Divock Origi. Origi left Liverpool near the end of his contract after collecting every club football trophy imaginable.
However, Chelsea has also been linked to a move for many attackers. According to recent rumours, the Blues have contacted Manchester City regarding the potential marking of Raheem Sterling.
Chelsea continues its search for a new middle back.
In the meanwhile, Thomas Tuchel’s team is in need of a new middle back ahead of the 2022–23 campaign. Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger both left the Blues on unrestricted free transfers in the summer.
It is important to note that the Blues were linked to a number of defenders during the summer transfer window. The Sun reports that the west London team is interested in pursuing PSG’s Presnel Kimpembe.
Jules Kounde, Nathan Ake, Matthijs de Ligt, and Kalidou Koulibaly are more defenders said to be moving to Stamford Bridge this summer.
However, the Blues have not yet signed a single community back during the transfer window.
