Chelsea star Hakim Ziyech’s representative ‘holds talks with AC Milan’ as winger targets January transfer exit

CHELSEA winger Hakim Ziyech’s representatives have reportedly held talks with AC Milan over a January switch.

The Morrocan star has been on the outskirts of the Blues squad this season and his playing time has not improved since the arrival of manager Graham Potter.

Hakim Ziyech could be on the way to AC Milan in January

Having only played five times in all competitions this season it would not be a surprise to see Ziyech look for a move away from London.

AC Milan have now had contact with Sebastien Ledure – one of Ziyech’s representatives – over a move, according to Football Italia.

The 29-year-old is a long-term target of the Serie A side and it appears they may finally get their man as it is believed that the winger is keen on a January move.

The report insists that Ledure is on “good terms” with the Chelsea hierarchy and close with Roc Nations – an agency helping Ziyech with negotiations.

Ledure also helped cross-city rivals Inter Milan re-sign Romelu Lukaku in the summer from Chelsea.

Ziyech signed a five-year deal with Chelsea when he moved there from Ajax in 2020 for £37million.

He has never really found his best form at Stamford Bridge as he has only managed to score 14 and assist 10 goals in his 88 appearances in all competitions.

AC Milan are not the only club rumored to be interested in signing the winger as former club Ajax have also believed to be in the running.

Ziyech made his name at Ajax and his form there helped the Dutch club to the Champions League semi-finals in 2019.

He contributed 127 goals and assists in his 165 appearances in all competitions for Ajax.

It is believed that his former side failed with a bid to sign him in August, so they could come back in for the Morrocan if he becomes available.

If Milan are able to get the 29-year-old and get him playing at his best then he could be a crucial player for them in the second half of the season.
