AC Milan 'reopen talks with Chelsea over Ziyech transfer' as he falls down pecking order after Sterling arrival | The SunJuly 23, 2022
AC MILAN have reportedly reopened talks with Chelsea over a transfer for Hakim Ziyech.
Calciomercato claims San Siro chiefs remain keen on signing the Moroccan, 29, after negotiations broke down earlier this month.
Ziyech handed in a transfer request at Chelsea in June after becoming frustrated with his lack of minutes under Thomas Tuchel.
Milan quickly made contact with the Blues over a move for Ziyech.

The duo ended up helping Milan win their first Serie A title since 2011.
And Ziyech could now be set to join them after just two years at Chelsea where he won a Super Cup, Club World Cup and Champions League.
He has scored 14 goals in 83 games for the Blues.
But the versatile midfielder has been unable to command a regular starting role under Tuchel.
Ziyech is also out of favour with his national side after falling out with boss Vahid Halilhodzic.
