According to Goal, French champions Paris Saint-Germain are closing on a loan deal to sign Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko.

Bakayoko is reportedly in talks with Paris Saint-Germain over a loan move ahead of the October 5 transfer deadline.

Goal claim the deal would likely be a season-long loan with an obligation to buy.

Italian club AC Milan are also interested in signing the French midfielder but aren’t willing to meet Chelsea’s demands.

Speaking about PSG’s interest in Bakayoko and Antonio Rudiger, PSG boss Thomas Tuchel said at the weekend: “These players belong to other clubs and we have to respect that.

“There is no point in talking about these two names. I can only say that the club knows my opinion.

“I am waiting. The transfer window is not over. The situation is not easy, but we still have a little bit of time.”

Bakayoko has become a forgotten man at Chelsea, having not played for the Blues since 2018 as he has spent time on loan at Monaco and AC Milan.
