Roma and Milan Face Very Steep Obstacles for Ziyech

Roma and Milan are both interested in Hakim Ziyech, but it’ll be tough to onboard him in January. The Giallorossi are on the hunt for an attacker since Nicolò Zaniolo asked out. They are trying to convince him to accept Bournemouth. There’s also a chance he gets frozen out if he stays, Corriere dello Sport informs.

The Rossoneri pulled out of the race for the Italian attacker due to the cost of the deal. Considering their recent woes, they could bolster their squad through the transfer market, but only if they find some bargains. They have been after the Moroccan star for multiple windows.

On the other hand, Milan and Roma would have to open their wallet to sign Ziyech, Gianluca Di Marzio relays. Chelsea can’t loan him out because they have used up their eight spots in that sense. Therefore, he can leave only on a permanent deal. They want around €20M to part ways with him.

In addition, the wages of the playmaker are a hurdle for the Italian suitors. He earns €6M and asked for more the last time the Rossoneri inquired about him right after the World Cup.

Our Take on Roma, Milan, and Ziyech

If those are the terms, then he won’t move to Italy this time either, despite all the rumors and courtships. La Lupa might have a better shot if they cashed in on Zaniolo as handsomely as they hoped, but that’s a stretch. The Scudetto champions arguably need him more.
