Thomas Tuchel has no plans to sell 28-year-old attacker


Thomas Tuchel has no plans to sell 28-year-old attacker

Ziyech not for sale this summer

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has no plans of selling Hakim Ziyech amid transfer interest from AC Milan.

The Moroccan struggled during his debut campaign for the Blues, making just 10 goal contributions from 39 appearances.

He has since redeemed himself with a positive pre-season, scoring five goals and recently netted in the UEFA Super Cup win.

According to Calciomercato, the Rossoneri are expected to look elsewhere for a new attacker with Ziyech unavailable.

The San Siro giants were eyeing an initial loan deal for him, but Tuchel has made it clear that Ziyech is not for sale.

The 28-year-old is currently sidelined with a dislocated shoulder sustained during the Super Cup against Villarreal last week.

The setback does not require any surgery. Tuchel has confirmed that the attacker could return after the international break.

Chelsea are scheduled to face London rivals Arsenal on the road on Sunday. Romelu Lukaku appears set make his second Blues debut.
