AC Milan are considering whether to make an offer for Chelsea winger Hakim Ziyech, according to reports in the Italian media.
The Moroccan international, who was signed for €40m (£33m), is said to not be on the best of terms with manager Thomas Tuchel and he could be sold this summer. Fans on Twitter are divided on whether the Blues should cash in on the player:
Would be a mistake

We need to free up room, don't mind him leaving tbh

Not for sale

Hope it happens… personally I rated him very highly but he’s clearly not PL level. Building a good relationship with Milan could prove to be useful in the future.

No please no

He deserves to stay

I be honest if it helps him perform and hes happy and comfortable then I'm all for it , if he wants to stay at chelsea and fight for this place I'm all for it

Rather give him another season to prove himself

He is not leaving

It is believed that Milan have already ruled out making a bid to sign Ziyech on a permanent basis, and a loan move is unlikely to be of interest to the Blues, who need to raise funds in order to secure their top transfer targets.
Napoli have also been linked with a move for the 28-year-old in recent days, so that could still be an avenue worth exploring, but, as things stand, it seems more likely that the Moroccan will be staying at Stamford Bridge.
