Frenchman Tiemoue Bakayoko is surplus to requirements at Chelsea and is expected to leave the club this summer.

The 26 year old midfielder, who impressed while on loan at Monaco last season, is attracting interest from Italian club AC Milan, where he played on loan during the 2018/19 season.

It was previously reported that Bakayoko was close to joining AC Milan but reports from Italy claim talks between Chelsea and AC Milan have hit a bit of a standstill.

According to Italian media outlet Gazzetta dello Sport, Chelsea transfer chief Marina Granovskaia is refusing to budge on the €30million valuation of French midfield flop Tiemoue Bakayoko and this is stalling Bakayoko’s transfer to AC Milan.

It will be interesting to see if some compromise can be struck between Chelsea and Milan in the near future.
