AC Milan are moving for Chelsea whizkid Gael Kakuta.

The 19-year-old, who joined the Blues in controversial circumstances three years ago, is out of contract at the end of the season.

There had been doubts about whether he would be offered a new deal as the west London club look to cut the wage bill, but L'Equipe says a four-year contract is on the table.

Bayern Munich have shown interest, but AC Milan have now emerged as a strong competitor.

Kakuta is concerned at his lack of first-team opportunities at Chelsea and would seek assurances from other suitors that he will get playing time.
