Chelsea’s Tiemoue Bakayoko to AC Milan
The transfer window may have closed for Premier League clubs, but European clubs are still able to do business this summer.
According to Italian transfer guru Gianluca Di Marzio, Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko is closing in on a move to AC Milan.
The Italian also notes that the talks to bring Bakayoko to the San Siro are “proceeding positively”.
Di Marzio added that AC Milan and Chelsea have been in contact on Saturday over the Bakayoko deal.
Finally, it’s pointed out that Bakayoko is keen on leaving Stamford Bridge to join the Rossoneri.

One issue which wasn’t reported on, however, were the terms of the possible Bakayoko deal.
The 23-year-old French midfielder is under contract with Chelsea until 2022.
Are Milan interested in signing Bakayoko on loan or in a permanent deal?
