According to Daily Express, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is keen on selling Chelsea flop Tiemoue Bakayoko this summer as he seeks to raise funds for the transfer of Kai Havertz.

Bakayoko joined Chelsea from Monaco three years ago for £40 million but struggled to impress in his first season at the club. He has spent the last two seasons on loan at AC Milan and Monaco.

Daily Express claim Lampard is happy to take a huge loss on Bakayoko by selling the Frenchman for just £18 million this summer.

The report on Daily Express claim Milan see Bakayoko as the ideal man to play with Ismael Bennacer in a midfield two if Ralf Rangnick makes his long-anticipated move to the San Siro and implements a 4-2-3-1 formation.

Milan have been handed a boost in their efforts to get Bakayoko back on board after Monaco opted against making his return to the principality permanent.
