Milan are confident that Ziyech is fully prepared to join him,” Romano added, noting that the two clubs are now discussing a possible deal.
AC Milan are looking to add new players to their ranks in order to retain the Italian league title they won last season for the first time since 2011.
Notably, Ziyech, 29, joined Chelsea in 2020 from Ajax in a deal that cost the English club €40m.
