Turkish club Trabzonspor have started serious talks with Milan over Ghanaian midfielder Michael Essien, Goal Ghana can exclusively reveal.

Trabzonspor chairman Ibrahim Haciosmanoğlu has already contacted the Rossoneri for the former Chelsea man and a deal could be reached next week.

New Milan boss Filipo Inzaghi is not keen on keeping the 31-year-old and could be sold to Trabzonspor for four million Euros.

Olympiakos and Al Ain are also knocking to secure the services of the Ghana international.

Essien could join former Chelsea and Lyon team-mate Florent Malouda who was signed by the club last summer.
