The Ghana international has been strongly linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge this January after struggling for first-team football under Jose Mourinho.

Milan have been linked with a possible loan bid to the end of the season, but are yet to make contact regarding any possible deal.

“The player will leave Chelsea and I have had a lot of contact from various clubs,” Fabian Piveteau has told Tuttomercatoweb this week.

“But Milan are not among them, not at least have I had direct contact with the Rossoneri.

“I will have some important meetings this week, then I will fly to London to assess with the club and the player the best solution.”
