Italian Serie A giants AC Milan have already successfully snapped up a striker from English Premier League side Chelsea this summer but they seem to be hungry for more players from the Blues. Milan completed the signing of former Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud from Chelsea this summer after a successful round of talks as the Italian side looked to bolster the attacking line of their squad. Giroud was signed for around £2 million from Stamford Bridge as a potential standing partner for Zlatan Ibrahimovic but with the two strikers already bearing the end of their careers, Milan are said to be interested in planning for the future.

According to the latest reports, Milan are very much interested in the idea of snapping up another striker from Chelsea, in the person of Tammy Abraham. The England international striker has largely been tipped to find another club after being told that he is currently behind Timo Werner and Kai Havertz in the pecking order under manager Thomas Tuchel.

There are also reports that Chelsea want to sign a new striker this summer, with Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland being their priority target. Should the Blues sign the Norwegian star from Dortmund, it would compound Abraham’s woes as he would find it even more difficult to earn himself a starting spot at the club.

Milan want to capitalize on the situation as they wish to sign Abraham, 23, who they believe still has a lot of years of improvement and development ahead of him. The Italian side are also of the notion that a younger striker would fit into their plans as Ibrahimovic is already nearing the tail-end of his playing career, while Giroud is also not getting any younger. If Abraham becomes available, Milan are one of the first clubs expected to make inquiries about him.
