AC Milan are interested in signing Hakim Ziyech on a season-long loan Chelsea, with talks reportedly underway.

The Morocco international joined for around £36m from Ajax in 2020 but has had a rather underwhelming spell under Frank Lampard and Thomas Tuchel since.

Injuries haven’t helped but the 29-year-old started just 15 Premier League games in his debut season and 14 last season, scoring six league goals for the Blues.

It wasn’t the return the west London club had hoped for and they are open to letting him go this summer if an agreement can be reached.

Italian publication TuttoMercatoWeb reports that talks have started between AC Milan and Chelsea over a loan deal for the upcoming season and the player is keen to make the move.

The issues concern Ziyech’s salary at Stamford Bridge, which is thought to be around £5million a year, while a loan fee and any purchase option or obligation has to be agreed between the clubs.

It’s very unlikely that AC Milan will pay the Moroccan what Chelsea are paying him, so the Premier League side would either have to pay part of his salary or the player would agree to a pay cut.

Romelu Lukaku has already completed a loan move from Stamford Bridge to Milan this summer and is moving to ex-club Inter for the coming season.

Chelsea are expected to make a number of signings before the start of the season, both in attack and defence, with replacements needed for outgoing forwards and centre-backs.

Antonio Rüdiger and Andreas Christensen have already left, so Thomas Tuchel needs at least two new central defenders, plus a winger and possibly a center forward.
