Bakayoko close to Milan

Sky Italia reports Milan are in advanced negotiations for Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko.

The Rossoneri are looking to reinforced in central midfield this summer, but general manager Leonardo admitted yesterday that the likes of Sergej Milinkovic-Savic are out of their price range.

Now though Sky is reporting that talks are well advanced for Bakayoko, with a loan with option to buy being discussed.

The 23-year-old joined the Blues last summer in a €45m deal from Monaco, but failed to impress in his debut season.

His hard-tackling style is unlikely to suit Maurizio Sarri’s style of play, but would be ideal for Diavolo Coach Gennaro Gattuso.
