It has been another positive season for AC Milan as they have qualified for the Champions League once again after securing one of the top four spaces in Serie A. They also advanced through to the semi-final of the premier European competition, which was their best run in Europe since they lifted the trophy in 2007.
Head coach Stefano Pioli will be hoping to add to his squad this summer to enhance his side’s title credentials next season. Here are three men that are being linked with a summer move to the Rossoneri.
Patson Daka (Leicester City)
AC Milan were interested in signing Leicester City striker Pastson Daka back in January but the Zambian opted to remain with the Foxes. Now that the 2016 Premier League winners have been relegated from the top flight of English football, Daka may look to leave the club this summer.

Daka was a prolific goalscorer in Austria for Red Bull Salzburg before he moved to Leicester in 2021. He has scored just nine Premier League goals for the Foxes in two seasons, but he has not always been a regular in their starting line-up.
Milan could face opposition from Galatasaray for his signature in the summer transfer window. Daka may have to decide which league he would like to play his football in next season.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek (Chelsea)
Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek is thought to be interested in leaving the London-based club next season in search of a fresh challenge in his career. Fikayo Tomori and Olivier Giroud were the last two players to switch from Chelsea to AC Milan and they have both been a success in Italy.
Loftus Cheek has played over 100 Premier League games for Chelsea. He has been capped 10 times by England, with his last appearance for his country coming in 2018. At the age of 27, he should now be in the peak stages of his career.
Mauricio Pochettino has recently been named the new permanent Chelsea manager ahead of next season. The Blues are available at +1200 at bwin.com.zm/sportsbook/highlights to win Premier League title in Pochettino’s opening campaign in charge of the club. Loftus Cheek is likely to have a conversation with the Argentine this summer to determine if he fits into his plans for next season.

Atletico Madrid striker Alvaro Morata knows all about football in Italy as he has spent four seasons in Serie A with Juventus. He could be set for a return to the Italian league, this time with AC Milan.
The Spain international looks set to leave Atletico this summer on a permanent transfer. As you can read at www.acmilaninfo.com/news-juventus-give-approval-to-higuain-morata-swap, he was linked with a move to Milan back in 2018 when playing for Juve.
Morata has scored goals at the highest level in England, Italy, and Spain. He remains one of the best strikers in Europe, so it would be a huge coup to land his services.
The summer transfer window opens on July 1 in Italy, and Serie A clubs will have until September 1 to complete their business.
