Chelsea are reported to be considering allowing unpopular midfielder Hakim Ziyech to leave on loan in January.
The playmaker, 28, struggled to get match time under Thomas Tuchel and looked set to move last summer.
However, the Blues are believed to have blocked a move – with AC Milan interested.
According to Calciomercato.it, the Italian giants can make a comeback when the transfer window opens.
The Italian news agency claims the Premier League is now open to offloading £36m from a loan signing with an obligation to buy.
This alerted Milan, who still wanted to bring Ziyech to the San Siro.
The Italian giants and the Premier League have enjoyed an excellent relationship in recent years in the transfer market.
Timoy Bakayoko, Olivier Giroud and Fikayo Tomori have all replaced West London with Milan in recent seasons.
