Italian giants AC Milan have confirmed they are in talks with Chelsea to sign Tiemoue Bakayoko.

The Blues will prefer to sell the French midfielder this summer but have apparently agreed a loan deal with AC Milan for Bakayoko, with Milan having an option to buy at the end of the season.

AC Milan legend and sporting director Paolo Maldini confirmed Bakayoko is a top target for the Serie A side.

“Bakayoko? We’re in talks with Chelsea to sign him, Tiemoué is one of our main targets,” Maldini said as quoted by Fabrizio Romano.

Bakayoko has not made a single appearance for Chelsea in over two years, with the Frenchman spending the last two seasons on loan at AC Milan and Monaco.
