Tiémoué Bakayoko isn’t included in Frank Lampard’s plans and is expected to leave Chelsea before the window closes on Monday. 

AC Milan and Paris Saint-Germain are linked with the 26-year-old, and reports in Italy now focus on the former’s interest in the Blues player.

Calciomercato states the midfielder ‘remains an option’ for the Serie A side as they keep the door open for his potential arrival. They will first have to convince the London club to give the green light for a transfer. 

As per the report, Milan are finding it ‘complicated’ to sign the former AS Monaco man because of Chelsea’s ‘high demands’. There’s no details of the ‘demands’ made by the Premier League side.

These claims have been backed up by Milan News, as they state Stefano Pioli’s side have ‘not yet abandoned’ the possibility of landing the Frenchman. 

It’s claimed the English club’s demands are deemed ‘very high’. Therefore, Milan will wait until the end of the window and hope to find an agreement with Chelsea for a lower fee than the €30m requested for the ‘right of redemption’.
