AC Milan keen as Hakim Ziyech slaps in Chelsea transfer demand

Hakim Ziyech is ready to leave Chelsea this summer.

Sky Italia says Ziyech has handed in a transfer request at Chelsea amid interest from AC Milan. The Rossoneri have already opened talks with the Blues over the midfielder.

The winger joined Chelsea in 2020 under the stewardship of now Everton manager Frank Lampard, but just two years into his five year contract, Ziyech has grown unhappy about his lack of minutes and is now seeking an exit, as reported by Sky Italia.

The 29-year-old has been a long-term target for the Serie A champions but in contrast to the past, AC Milan are now confident of landing their target.

Ziyech's long-term Chelsea contract runs until 2025, however the former Ajax player is keen to cut his time in London short and his agent initiated talks with Milan, which have now approached Chelsea.
