AC Milan are planning a triple transfer swoop ion Chelsea.
They have already made clear their intentions to convert the loan signing of defender Fikayo Tomori into a permanent deal..
But now they want to add the out-of-favour due of Olivier Giroud and Hakim Ziyech to their squad as well.
That is despite Giroud agreeing a one year contract extension last week, with his representatives subsequently making it clear that there was an understanding that eh would be allowed to move on if a suitable offer were made.
Ziyech was the first signing of the Frank Lampard era at Stamford Bridge, but he had a mixed season last campaign, and has often found himself below Mason Mount, Kai Havertz and Christian Pulisic in the pecking order under Thomas Tuchel.
Napoli are also reported to be interested in his services.
Milan finished second in Serie A last season, which means thy have qualified for the Champions League for the first time since 20913 and 2014 and are looking to further strengthen their squad ahead of next season.
