Chelsea’s Tiemoue Bakayoko a loan target for AC Milan

AC Milan are in talks to sign Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko on loan, according to Sky in Italy.

Bakayoko joined the Blues from Monaco last summer for £40m and started 25 Premier League games in his first season in the Premier League.

He has been involved in Chelsea’s pre-season under new manager Maurizio Sarri and was included in the starting XI for their final International Champions Cup clash with Lyon on Tuesday.

Chelsea have boosted their midfield options this summer with the high-profile signing of Jorginho from Napoli, a player Sarri knows well.

The Blues have also been linked with Real Madrid midfielder Mateo Kovacic.
