Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti is eyeing up a swoop for AC Milan’s veteran midfielder Massimo Ambrosini according to reports from Italy.
The 33-year-old tough-tackling midfielder is coming to the end of his contract with the Rossoneri in June and this has alerted Ancelotti to the possibility of bringing the Italian to Stamford Bridge.
Italian daily Gazzetta dello Sport report that Chelsea’s interest in Ambrosini is set to firm up as Ancelotti looks to complete a deal and tempt the player, who he worked with when in charge at Milan, to the Premier League.
Ambrosini joined Milan in 1995 and, with the exception of a brief loan spell with Vicenza, has been a fixture in their success ever since.
The midfielder, who picked up 35 caps for Italy between 1999 and 2008, may well welcome the opportunity for one last new challenge in what has been an illustrious career with one of the world’s biggest clubs.
