Serie A giants identify Hakim Ziyech as top target

Hakim Ziyech news

Ziyech to Milan?

Chelsea attacker Hakim Ziyech has emerged as the top attacking target for AC Milan this summer.

The Morocco international joined the Blues from Ajax last summer, but struggled to impress in his debut campaign.

He showed glimpses of his quality, but overall, he was disappointing with just six goals and four assists from 39 games.

He has been fancied to leave the Blues after just one season, and Corriere dello Sport claims that the Rossoneri are keen.

The San Siro giants recently saw the departure of Hakan Calhanoglu, who joined arch-rivals Inter Milan for free.

They are in advanced negotiations to re-sign Brahim Diaz from Real Madrid on loan with the option to buy.

However, they are also searching for an experienced attacker, and have their sights on landing Ziyech from the Blues.

The Blues bought Ziyech for around £34m last year. They could demand a similar fee to part ways with his services.

Aside from Ziyech, Olivier Giroud has also been tipped to join Milan.
