Milan Rekindle Interest in Chelsea Midfield Talent

Romelu Lukaku isn’t the only player being discussed by Chelsea and Milan, as the latter have shown interested in Carney Chukwuemeka, whom they already chased in the past. He’s under contract until 2028. He’s coming off an injury-riddled season where he appeared just 12 times. 

Per Il Giorno, the Rossoneri asked for the player on loan. Instead, the Blues prefer an outright sale. An obligation to buy, perhaps with some conditions triggering it, could be the compromise to do the deal. The two sides are on excellent terms and have arranged multiple operations in recent years. 

Milan are targeting Chukwuemeka as their retool in the midfield could be more significant than expected. They might part ways with Ismael Bennacer, who’s wanted in the Middle East. If he left, they’d add multiple pieces. They are very keen on Monaco’s Youssouf Fofana too. 

The 20-year-old emerged with Aston Villa but hasn’t lived up to expectations at Chelsea following a €18M move. He has scored twice and assisted once in 27 appearances in the last two seasons. He missed multiple months due to a knee injury in 2023/2024. 

Our Take on Milan on Chukwuemeka

He’s still very young and worth a shot with the right formula, provided they have a chance to keep him permanently, and he isn’t their lone new signing at the position regardless of the potential Bennacer exit. Since their targets are all box-to-boxes, it looks like they’ll go with Tijjani Reijnders as the anchor of the midfield, which is a little debatable.
