AC Milan plan a discussion with Chelsea over the players that the London club may want to sell in this January transfer window, according to Calciomercato.
The Blues are by far the biggest spender in Europe in this January transfer window after investing over £150million in six players, including their latest confirmed signing, Noni Madueke. The arrival of the new ownership group plays a big part in this, and even among the wealthy clubs, very few are prepared to make such a big investment.
Chelsea’s spending spree, however, is also seen as an opportunity for a number of clubs, including Milan, who are interested in players who may become surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge.
Calciomercato claims in the coming weeks, Milan will have a discussion with Chelsea to see which of their players are for sale and on what terms.
The report mentions two players that Milan may be particularly interested in; Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Christian Pulisic.
Milan directors Paolo Maldini and Frederic Massara are said to be a fan of Loftus-Cheek who is reportedly valued at around €30m (£26m).
The midfielder has not featured for Chelsea since November due to a calf injury, although he made the bench in the stalemate with Liverpool on Saturday.
If, as Fabrizio Romano recently claimed, Chelsea were in the market for a midfielder and a right-back, the 26-year-old might have some difficulty in keeping his spot in the team even with his versatility.
Pulisic, on the other hand, is described as an “easier” target among Chelsea attackers.
His contract’s expiring in 2024 is the main reason for that, but the fierce competition for spots at Chelsea after the arrivals of the likes of Raheem Sterling and Mykhailo Mudryk also plays a part.
