Italian Serie A League giants AC Milan are reportedly interested in signing Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas in January.
The veteran passer is yet to feature for the 2017/2018 FA winners in the Premier League since the arrival of new boss Maurizio Sarri this summer.
Football Italia quoting Corriere dello Sport reports that the Serie A club have been linked with Cesc in the past but this time, his non-playing status at the Stamford Bridge might motivate the deal to happen.

The maestro midfielder who last featured for Chelsea in their 2-0 defeat to Man City in the Community Shield has not been able to break into Sarri’s Blues squad since the arrival of Jorginho from Napoli.
Fabregas joined Chelsea from Barcelona in the summer of 2014, and has won two Premier League in the process.
