AC Milan Making Progress Towards Signing Chelsea Star

With so many incomings, Chelsea will need to trim the squad and the prominent candidate for a move away seems to be French midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko. The report claims that the eventual agreement is likely to include an option to buy.

AC Milan fans would certainly love to see him arrive at the club this summer.

Tiemoue Bakayoko is close to leaving Chelsea.

With a strong work ethic and a reputation as being a player with excellent technical abilities on the ball, it is expected that the former Inter and Dinamo Zagreb man will slot neatly into the system of new coach Maurizio Sarri at the London club.

The signing of Matteo Kovacic on loan from Real Madrid and Jorginho from Napoli further casted Bakayoko's future in doubt.

Last season, the 23-year-old player joined the Stamford Bridge club from Monaco, and he played 25 Premier League games in his first season with the Blues.

He featured in all four of their pre-season friendlies but was absent from the squad for their Community Shield defeat to Manchester City a week ago.

After replacing former boss Antonio Conte so late in the summer, the Italian will surely have been hoping to have concluded more business by now. Either way, Bakayoko has intense competition in Cesc Fabregas, Ross Barkley, Jorginho, N'Golo Kante and possibly Mateo Kovacic.

With Milan leading the race for Bakayoko, Everton's interest appears to be dependent on whether or not they land Zouma. Today, big news coming out of Chelsea... However, at AC Milan he could get regular football and possibly shine for his style of play.
