AC MILAN are weighing-up a January swoop for Chelsea star Cesc Fabregas.
The Serie A giants were linked with the midfielder throughout the summer but a move failed to materialise.
However Corriere dello Sport claim Milan will test Chelsea’s resolve again once the window re-opens.
Fabregas is out of contract at Stamford Bridge next summer.
The 31-year-old will able to leave on a free transfer, which could tempt the Blues to cash in this winter.
The ex-Arsenal man has not played under new boss Maurizio Sarri because of injury.
It is unclear if Fabregas will be in Sarri’s first-team plans after the arrivals of midfielders Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic.
Fabregas has featured just once for Chelsea so far in their Community Shield defeat to Manchester City.
Fabregas, who joined the Blues in 2014 after a three-year stint at Barcelona, may decide to move on if he fails to receive more opportunities.
And he could decide a fresh start in Italy is exactly what he needs to reignite his career.
