Serie A side AC Milan are said to be close to agreeing a deal for Chelsea's Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

AC Milan are reportedly close to agreeing on a deal with Chelsea for midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek for a deal in the summer transfer window. 

The 27-year-old Cobham Academy graduate has had multiple loan spells away from the club. He could be set for a permanent exit, with the Rossoneri keen on landing.  

Loftus-Cheek to Milan 

According to a report by Italian outlet Vito Angele, last season’s Serie A champions are moving closer to agreeing a deal for the former Fulham midfielder.  

The player is also said to be keen and has already contracted Fikayo Tomori, who made a similar move from Chelsea to Milan, to inquire about the club. 

The Champions League semi-finalists are said to be offering €10 million for the midfielder, whose contract expires next summer; however, Chelsea are reportedly holding out on double the offer.  

Personal terms are said to have been reached already, and Loftus-Cheek is set to earn €3.5 million a year.

It remains to be seen if an agreement will be reached as Chelsea prepare for a summer of exits to treat their bloated squad. 

Meanwhile,  Chelsea forward Raheem Sterling is excited about the club's appointment of Mauricio Pochettino as the club's next manager and believes he's exactly the profile the club needs.
