Chelsea star Essien eager to hear AC Milan offer

Chelsea star Michael Essien is keen to hear from AC Milan.

The Mirror says Essien is interested in a move to AC Milan.

Both Milan and Juventus are keen on the 28-year-old midfielder, who was a £24million signing from Lyon six years ago.

And they are encouraged enough by Essien's private stance - despite his agent's public denials - to press ahead with moves for him this summer.

He has told friends he would be interested if the price is right.

It now remains for the Ghana star to establish if he is part of Andre Villas-Boas' plans before he decides whether to stay and fight for his place or leave for Serie A.
