AC Milan are interested in buying Chelsea’s Hakim Ziyech as Calhanoglu replacement

Calhanoglu departure

AC Milan are targeting Chelsea’s Hakim Ziyech, thought to be a prospective replacement for Hakan Calhanoglu.

The Turkish international’s contract expires with the Italian side this summer and they have been so far unsuccessful in renewing his deal.

It is understood that Arsenal are one of the clubs tracking the Turkish international’s situation. CBS’s James Benge broke the news.

“Another target who Arsenal are understood to have broached internally is Hakan Calhanoglu, out of contract with AC Milan this summer. He is an option, not clear how high on the list he might be but expectation is he’s an alternative to Odegaard,” wrote Benge.

He would provide much creativity and quality to the Arsenal side.

Milan target Ziyech

Ziyech has not been a regular under Thomas Tuchel and has been primarily an option from the bench.

Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport suggests that Milan are looking to the former Ajax man as an opportunity to bring in some much needed creativity.

In February Thomas Tuchel blamed himself for Ziyech’s lack of minutes:

“It is my fault, it is my decision. For Hakim and some other players here are hard decisions to make, it is a good thing because it means we have quality.

“There are some decisions for other players that means Hakim suffers at the moment, I can understand so it is my responsibility in this case that he cannot show more.

“When I look at the rhythm and schedule for the next days I am sure we will need all of our players.”

Could a move away after just a year at the club now take place?
