The Ghanian midfielder, 31, has made just two Premier League starts for the Blues after returning from a season-loan loan at Real Madrid.
The Rossoneri are interested in Essien primarily because he was excluded from the Blues’ Champions League squad and would therefore be eligible to feature for Milan in the last-16 of the competition and beyond.
Mourinho is a big fan of Essien but may allow the midfielder to leave in order to get regular first team football ahead of next summer’s World Cup.
