Frank Lampard decided against including Tiémoué Bakayoko in his plans for this season, which is why Chelsea sent him out on loan to AS Monaco.

The Ligue 1 side have an option to make the midfielder’s transfer permanent, but it’s unlikely they will exercise it.

Le10 Sport has a report on the Frenchman and they focus on Paris Saint-Germain, West Ham United and AC Milan.

It’s claimed the Blues are demanding €35m for the former Rennes man and the figure quoted is deemed too high by PSG sporting director Leonardo. Therefore, he has decided to look at alternatives in the market.

The Hammers and the Serie A side, on the other hand, are on the ‘lookout’ for the 25-year-old.

With regards to David Moyes’ side, the report adds West Ham are studying Bakayoko’s case ‘very closely’ as it’s thought he will be heading for another loan move in the summer.

Despite West Ham’s presence, it’s Milan who remain the strongest suitor to take him in the upcoming window.

Bakayoko spent the 2018/19 season on loan at Milan and Le10 adds the Italian club are best positioned to win the battle for his signature.
