He has failed to show up in big games, particularly against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League, while accounting only a solitary goal at the spot in his recent four appearances for the Rossoneri, who have suffered 5 defeats in their latest 6 outings.
While Milan boss Clarence Seedorf is keen on holding on to his prized asset at the moment, he appears to be finding it hard to get the best out of the 23-year-old striker.
Meanwhile, Blues manager Jose Mourinho did not rule out on the possibility of acquiring the controversial attacker.
