AC Milan are reportedly making a move to sign Chelsea's winger Hakim Ziyech on loan. According to reports, the Moroccan is unsure of his place on the blues team and would like to move elsewhere if regular football is not guaranteed.

The recent report of a player plus cash bid for Haaland is also a contributing factor to the winger's uncertainty. The report suggested that the winger would be offered to Dortmund in a player plus cash deal for Haaland.

AC Millan wants to strike a loan deal with Chelsea with an option to buy the former Ajax man in the future. The Italians are reportedly interested in signing Isco and Philippe Coutinho but believe the Moroccan to be a better option financially. 

Reports also suggest that the Rossoneri are confident of getting ziyech due to their recent success in working with the London club. The San Siro occupants have already signed Olivier Giroud from Chelsea this summer. Giroud's Milan move followed the Rossoneri's acquisition of Fikayo Tomori from the London Club.

Hakim Ziyech's first year at Chelsea wasn't impressive.

Ziyech joined the Blues last summer for a fee of £38 million from the Netherlands' Ajax. The 28-year-old Moroccan had a mixed first season at Stamford Bridge

Hed his first season with an injury he picked up during the preseason of last summer. However, the winger soon recovered from that injury and won his place under then boss Frank Lampard. His form took Chelsea to the summit of the Premier League and UEFA Champions League group stage tables.  

Injuries soon set in to unsettle the winger again, and his absence was linked to Chelsea's poor form that followed, with Lampard being shown the way out of Stamford Bridge.

The arrival of Thomas Tuchel saw the Moroccan fall down the pecking order at Chelsea, with the German coach preferring the likes of Christian Pulisic and Mason Mount in the wild areas.
