West Ham made late attempt to beat AC Milan for Chelsea's Essien

West Ham United made a late bid for Chelsea midfielder Michael Essien yesterday.

The Daily Mail says Essien is close to finalising a move to AC Milan despite a late enquiry from West Ham.

The Ghana international is keen on a move abroad and his agents held lengthy talks with the Serie A club on Thursday as they look to agree terms.

The 31-year-old was also considered by West Ham as they continue to weigh up midfield options.
