AC Milan are reportedly preparing a triple transfer raid on Chelsea for Hakim Ziyech, Olivier Giroud and Fikayo Tomori.
All three players have found game time hard to come by at Stamford Bridge this season.
And Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport is reported that Serie A runners-up Milan were ready to pounce.
Tomori was shipped out on loan to AC Milan, where he obviously impressed with his performances.
Big things were expected of Ziyech after he joined Chelsea last summer for £37million from Ajax.
But the Moroccan arrived injured and didn’t do enough to impress previous boss Frank Lampard or his predecessor Thomas Tuchel.
AC Milan’s Serie A rivals Napoli are also believed to be chasing the 28-year-old.
Giroud made only 17 appearances for the Blues in the Premier League, scoring four goals.
But Chelsea announced this week they had secretly triggered a clause to extend it for a further year.
That means Giroud will no longer be free to discuss a transfer to a new club this summer unless Chelsea receive an appropriate transfer bid.
