AC Milan are thinking about reigniting their interest in Chelsea midfielder Tiémoué Bakayoko this summer.
That’s according to Calciomercato.it, who say the Italian side could be interested in signing the Chelsea flop for a second time.
The website explains that there’s been a ‘day of meetings’ at Casa Milan, and after they signed Fikayo Tomori on a permanent basis, attention has now turned to other positions.
They want another midfielder and defender, and a meeting was held this morning between representatives of the agency that represents Jonathan Ikoné, Lovro Majer and Tiémoué Bakayoko.
Bakayoko was already ‘close to a return’ to the Rossoneri in the past, and the Chelsea man has been the ‘subject of in-depth talks’ once again.
His contract at Stamford Bridge expires in 2022, and Chelsea would prefer to sell him on a permanent basis, according to CM.it’s information.
Despite having just a year left on his deal Chelsea value him at close to €20m, and at the minute, the loan route ‘is not considered’ at this moment in time, unless there is a ‘strategic renewal’ to protect them.
Whether Milan will pay that isn’t mentioned, but it seems their interest in Bakayoko has been reinvigorated, and that may be something that develops this summer.
