Tiemoue Bakayoko close to AC Milan loan move from Chelsea

Tiemoue Bakayoko close to AC Milan loan move from Chelsea

It is believed that Bakayoko will join the Italians on loan with an option to join permanently next summer.

Chelsea winger Willian has confirmed he has no desire to leave the Blues this season after being linked with a move to Jose Mourinho's Manchester United.

He signed Jorginho from Napoli in a five year deal valued around €57 million, while Mateo Kovacic joined on loan from Real Madrid.

Bakayoko joined the Premier League side last summer as a replacement for Nemanja Matic, but doesn't fit into his manager's plans this term.

At a press conference, Sarri told reporters: "Now I think the squad is too large".

The player's agent has been in Milan for talks over a loan move, with the European window yet to shut. I don't know who at the moment. I prefer to have 23, 24 players and three or four very young players.

And he remains unsure if new signing Kepa Arrizabalaga will start in goal at the Kirklees Stadium or if it will be Willy Caballero between the sticks. "I always made it clear that what I wanted was to stay in the club".

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 Belgian defender has been linked with the Red Devils, who are also interested in Jerome Boateng and Eintracht Frankfurt forward Ante Rebic.

He struggled to make an impact in midfield for the Blues however, who could only finish fifth in the Premier League.
