AC Milan target Mikel, Cole

AC Milan is weighing up moves for out-of-favour Chelsea duo Ashley Cole and Mikel Obi as head coach Clarence Seedorf looks to bolster his ailing squad in the summer.

Cole’s current contract at Stamford Bridge expires at the end of the season and his long-term future is uncertain after falling behind Cesar Azpilicueta in Jose Mourinho’s affections.

The Portuguese boss is eager to keep the 33-year-old but Blues owner Roman Abramovich has yet to sanction a new deal, prompting Cole to explore other options.

After watching his struggling Milan side record an underwhelming victory over Catania on Sunday, Seedorf spoke of his desire to strengthen his squad in the fullback positions, reports Goal.

“I’d prefer the likes of Cafu and Serginho on the flanks, but we don’t have them!” he told reporters.

“(Daniele) Bonera has brought great balance to the side, (Kevin) Constant is a midfielder, (Urby) Emanuelson has played as a fullback a few times in his career, but we don’t really have a left back.”

Mikel is also a target, but any move for the Nigerian this summer depends on whether Milan decides to sign Valencia loanee Adil Rami and QPR midfielder Adel Taarabt on permanent deals.
