Chelsea will need to increase their contract offer in order to convince Hakan Calhanoglu to join them on a free transfer.
The 27-year-old has been impressive for AC Milan this term, registering seven goals and 11 assists from 36 appearances.
Despite his exploits, he has been reluctant to extend his Milan contract beyond June as the club have yet to meet his wage demands.
The Blues have already made contact with his representatives, but they will need to place a better contract offer on the table.
According to Il Milanista, the Turkey international is open to pursuing a fresh challenge in the Premier League next season.
The Rossoneri have offered him around €4m per year, and the Blues’ proposal is reportedly less than that of the Serie A outfit.
The west London giants are still interested in Calhanoglu, and they could make a fresh approach over the coming days.
Chelsea are currently lying fourth in the Premier League standings.
