Another European giants are also monitoring his situation
Cesc Fabregas joined Chelsea from Barcelona on a five-year contract for a fee in the region of €33 million in 2014. He has been their mainstay in the midfield over the past past four seasons at the club.
The Spain International was pivotal in both the club’s Premier League victory in 2014-2015 season and 2016-2017 season. His vision and passing ranges were one of the important factors upon which the Premier League giants game play was based on.
But the 31 year old struggled for form last season. Despite managing an impressive 46 appearances for the club in all competitions, he was not a regular starter under former manager Antonio Conte.
He even missed out on a place in the Spain World squad this summer due to inconsistent performances last season and was even linked with an exit before the transfer deadline.
Former Arsenal star is yet to feature in any of the Premier League fixtures so far this season under new manager Maurizio Sarri after aggravating a knee injury in the Community Shield defeat to Manchester City.
The Spaniard is close to returning to full fitness but faces a fight to get back into the side, with N’Golo Kante, Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic providing fierce competition in midfield.
However, his future is still doubtful as he has entered the final year of his contract and could leave on a free transfer next summer, as he will be free to talk to clubs after December.
There were reports that AC Milan are interested in signing him and are even keen to make Tiemoue Bakayoko’s deal permanent in order to use it as a bargaining tool.
La Liga outfit Sevilla have joined AC Milan in the hunt for Cesc Fabregas, according to Calciomercato.
