Chelsea have told winger Hakim Ziyech that he is free to leave the club this summer, with AC Milan among the sides interested in signing him, 90min understands.

Ziyech moved to Stamford Bridge in the summer of 2020 for a fee of around £33m but has struggled to replicate the form he showed during his glittering spell with Ajax, managing 14 goals and ten assists in 83 appearances since his arrival.

Manager Thomas Tuchel and owner Todd Boehly are exploring a number of attacking signings this summer, with Ousmane Dembele, Raheem Sterling and Richarlison among those being discussed, and Chelsea have also held talks with the representatives of Ajax winger Antony.

To make space for at least one new face, Chelsea have already agreed to loan Romelu Lukaku back to Inter and sources have confirmed to 90min that the Blues are open to parting ways with Ziyech and another struggling forward, Timo Werner. Christian Pulisic is another facing an uncertain summer.
