After a few unsuccessful attempts to persuade Chelsea to let Andreas Christiansen leave on loan, AC Milan have now focused on signing another Blues defender.
According to the Italian newspaper, Tuttosport, the Rossoneri are lining up a January swoop for Chelsea skipper Gary Cahill.
Cahill’s contract will expire next summer, and he is yet to pen a new deal. Therefore, the 32-year-old Englishman and the London outfit are destined to part ways after the end of the season.
Meanwhile, the Serie A giants are desperate to land an experienced centre-back following the injuries of Alessio Romagnoli, Mateo Musacchio, and Mattia Caldara.
Gennaro Gattuso’s defensive options have narrowed down to Christian Zapata and Stefan Simic, which is why Ivan Gazidis and Leonardo have to make something out of the January transfer window.
Cahill, who collected 190 Premier League appearances for Chelsea since his arrival from Bolton Wanderers back in 2012, has spent the majority of this campaign on the bench, with Maurizio Sarri preferring David Luiz and Antonio Rudiger over his captain.
