The Ghanian midfielder has made just five Premier League appearances, only two from the start, this season and was not included in the Blues’ Champions League squad.
Essien is reportedly keen for more first team football ahead of next summer’s World Cup in Brazil, while AC want midfield reinforcement ahead if their Champions League last-16 clash with Atletico Madrid, because Ricardo Montolivio and Sulley Muntari are suspended.
Galatasaray are also thought to be in the running to sign Essien but the player would favour a move to the Serie A.
