Chelsea are lining up a summer bid for AC Milan winger Rafael Leao that may include Hakim Ziyech, according to Calciomercatonews.com.
Leao is currently valued at €120m (£103.5m) by the Rossoneri. However, the Blues are counting on the fact that the Serie A champions may have to sell for a lower price at the end of the season when he will have just twelve months left on his contract.
With Ziyech being a long-term target for Milan, the Blues know they could be able to reduce the amount they pay even further by including the Moroccan international in any offer.
Calciomercatonews.com report that Chelsea “intends” to go ahead with a formal approach and they even go as far as to say that Milan “could end up accepting”.
With Leao having yet to sign a new deal, the Italian club are in a difficult position, and offering up Ziyech on a plate could give them the extra incentive to sanction the move.
