According to European football expert Mark Langdon, Chelsea might be forced to sell Tiemoue Bakayoko because the Blues have too many midfielders.

French outlet RMC Sport claim Manchester United, Arsenal and PSG are interested in signing the Frenchman and Langdon believes Chelsea might have to sell the 24-year-old to accommodate Chelsea youngster Mason Mount.

Langdon said, according to talkSPORT: “If you get the Bakayoko from Chelsea then he’s not someone you’d want, but this was a player who impressed at Monaco alongside Kylian Mbappe, Thomas Lemar and Benjamin Mendy; he looked a top talent when he was there. And I thought he did okay during his loan spell in Milan.

“If you look at his career as a whole, and just take out that one bad year at Chelsea, I think there’s a decent player in there. I wouldn’t be surprised if he left Chelsea.

“I don’t think they’ll sell many but there is no point keeping all those midfielders; they are well stocked there with Mateo Kovacic, N’Golo Kante, Jorginho, Ross Barkley, and Ruben Loftus-Cheek to come back from injury.

“If you want to make room for someone like Mason Mount you can’t have too many players in that position, so that might be one they are prepared to do.”
