Chelsea are reportedly prepared to listen to offers for Tiemoue Bakayoko after the midfielder failed to impress Chelsea boss Frank Lampard during preseason.

According to RMC Sport, Premier League side Everton have identified Bakayoko as a replacement for PSG-bound Idrissa Gana Gueye.

PSG were previously interested in signing Bakayoko but the French club is no longer interested in the midfielder after signing Gueye from Everton for £28m.

Everton have already signed Fabian Delph from Manchester City but they see Bakayoko as an ideal man to strengthen their option in the centre of the pitch.

Bakayoko joined Chelsea from Monaco in the summer of 2017 for £40million but struggled to impress in the Premier League. He spent last season on loan at Italian side AC Milan.

Chelsea will be happy to listen to offers for Bakayoko as Lampard will need to omit a senior foreign player from his 25-man Premier League squad ahead of the new season, while the Blues will need to include at 17 homegrown players in their Champions League squad.

The Blues are reportedly willing to allow Bakayoko to head out on loan again this season, or move permanently.

Everton are happy to offer Bakayoko a second chance in English football after he impressed on loan at AC Milan.
