AC Milan seek Chelsea, Arsenal talks over midfield options

AC Milan are shopping in England for a new midfield addition next month.

Milan coach Stefano Pioli is eager to add a box-to-box midfielder over the winter market and their search is leading to the Premier League.

While Napoli ace Allan is a target, the Rossonero are also keen on sacked Arsenal captain Granit Xhaka and AS Monaco's on-loan Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko. Bakayoko had an inconsistent loan spell with Milan last season.

Like Allan, Milan believe Chelsea may demand too much for Bakayoko over January.

As such, Milan management believe Xhaka could be the most realistic option to boost Pioli's midfield options for the second-half of the season.
