Chelsea’s interest in Monaco midfielder Tiemoue Bakayako has cooled down in the past days, as the Blues are said to be frustrated with the many intermediaries involved in the deal.
Chelsea have been keen on Lyon midfielder Corentin Tolisso in recent times, and the Blues are reportedly keen on signing the Lyon star for around £34m.
However, there has been a new twist in the race for Tolisso, as Bayern Munich have now entered the race.
Former Chelsea boss and current Bayern Munich manager Carlo Ancelotti has stepped up his pursuit of Chelsea target Corentin Tolisso – by giving him a call.
According to Foot 365, the Italian boss made the personal approach to the Lyon man, who is expected to leave the French side this summer.
Ancelotti’s personal efforts to reach Tolisso has now placed Bayern Munich in the forefront to sign the Lyon midfielder.
