Milan are focusing on strengthening the midfielders after being eliminated by Inter, with the name of Chelsea’s Loftus Cheek standing out. The 27-year-old Englishman has been playing for the “blues” since 2014, has been loaned to Crystal Palace and Fulham in the 2017-18 and 2020-21 seasons respectively and is now one step ahead of the next stage of his career.
According to Fabrizio Romano, Milan is already in talks with the player’s side with the aim of regenerating their center. At the same time, he states that the footballer is positive about moving to Italy as the negotiations are progressing very well so far.
This year he is not having his best season with 30 appearances in all competitions and just two assists, a situation that is reasonable, however, if you consider Chelsea’s tragic run in the Premier League and Champions League. His value is 25 million euros according to transfermarkt while his contract with the Londoners expires in the summer of 2024.
Understand AC Milan are in concrete talks to sign Ruben Loftus Cheek from Chelsea. He’s priority target to rebuild the midfield. ?????? #ACMilan
