Hakim Ziyech is on top of the possible players who would join AC Milan this summer. The former Ajax star joined Chelsea last season but has not lived up to his expectations. AC Milan plan to make around 6-7 signings this summer, a midfielder being one of them.
Injuries, a change in management, competition within the squad and the pressure of being a top signing did not yield a good season. He scored 2 and assist 3 in 25 Premier League games. In Chelsea’s Champions’ League run to victory, Ziyech scored 2 in 10 appearances. He was an unused substitute on the bench for the final.
Hakan Calhanoglu left for city rivals Inter Milan leaving the Rossoneris in search of another midfielder. The club has been pretty busy this window in a bid to win the title next season. Many youngsters are on the list who will be out on loan or sold. Every day brings about a new business strategy, a new agreement, a step closer to the perfect team.
Chelsea may send Ziyech to Milan
Chelsea and AC Milan have been in business for quite some time now. Olivier Giroud is another player that the Rossoneris are interested in. Tiemoue Bakayoko and Emerson too have been on the club’s radar after the arrival of Ben Chilwell. After much speculation, Fikayo Tomori signed for AC Milan from Chelsea. This could be just one of the few deals we see between Chelsea and Milan.
Ziyech has been struggling to find a spot in the talented Chelsea squad. 2 years ago he scored a beauty at Stamford Bridge while playing for Ajax which stole the hearts of most of the fans. Timo Werner and Kai Havertz too struggled to give their best last season but got the minutes they wanted.
Should he move to Italy?
Ziyech is known for long range passing and crossing skills, 2 attributes that dominate Italian football. With a forward like Zlatan Ibrahimovic playing in front of him, Ziyech can be at his creative best.
Ziyech will thrive in Italy and let’s hope the clubs make the right decisions.
