Chelsea attacker preparing for January exit
Chelsea attacker Hakim Ziyech is reportedly preparing to leave the club when the transfer window reopens in January.
The Moroccan was desperate to leave the west London giants last summer, but the Blues declined to accept any proposals.
However, this has not improved his game time and he is currently regarded as a squad player under manager Graham Potter.
According to Calciomercato, the winger will now push for an exit in January and he is hopeful that the Blues will permit him.
The club were reluctant to sell him in the last transfer window, but their stance is expected to change due to Ziyech's status.
AC Milan are deemed as favourites to sign the 29-year-old but they are unlikely to come close to the Blues' price tag.
Chelsea will need to lower their £40m valuation significantly if they want to part ways with the Moroccan in the New Year.
Ziyech is presently with Morocco at the World Cup in Qatar.
