AC Milan are interested in signing Chelsea's Michael Essien on loan this month, according to Football Italia.

The 31 year-old has struggled for regular first team action at Stamford Bridge this season and is thought to be available on a short term basis.

Essien would also be eligible for Milan's Champions League knockout stage tie having failed to make it onto the pitch for Chelsea in Europe this season.
