Milan Initiate Contacts for Potential Chelsea Outcast

Milan are concretely interested in Ruben Loftus-Cheek, who has been on their radar for a while. They have opened talks with Chelsea to explore the terms of the deal. While the Rossoneri are tangibly keen, the negotiation is in its early stages, Sky relays.

The management plot to properly address their midfield in the summer. They didn’t replace Franck Kessié last year, plus Ismael Bennacer will miss six months due to a knee cartilage lesion. The Englishman is said to have okayed the destination.

Milan could exploit the fact that Loftus-Cheek hasn’t played a lot this season. He has featured very little since the Blues went on a spending spree in January. Lazio and Roma are keeping an eye on him too. Maurizio Sarri previously coached him in London.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Chelsea value their home-grown product €25M. However, he doesn’t have a long-term contract, plus they will have to sell some players. Therefore, they could lower their request down the line.

The 27-year-old isn’t the only player in the Rossoneri’s crosshairs. They are in advanced talks to onboard Daichi Kamada on a free. However, they have to finalize their plans for the position first, Corriere della Sera reports.

Our Take on Milan and Loftus-Cheek

He’s been linked with a move to Serie A multiple times to no avail. The destination makes sense, and they successfully did business with Chelsea in the past. He’d be a good fit given his traits and versatility, but they should take multiple stabs to seriously bolster their midfield. They should veer toward having a muscular no.10 all the time since they have fared the best with such solution in the last two years.
