AC Milan trying to reach Tiémoué Bakayoko agreement

Chelsea transfer news Eden Hazard is set for crunch talks over his future

Now though Sky is reporting that talks are well advanced for Bakayoko, with a loan with option to buy being discussed.

Tiemoue Bakayoko was present in games during Chelsea's pre-season but has left Maurizio Sarri unimpressed.

Goal reported on Tuesday that a move was in the pipeline and it was completed formally on Thursday as part of the deal that saw Thibaut Courtois move in the opposite direction, hours before the transfer deadline in England.

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri admits that is squad at Stamford Bridge is "too large" and that players will leave before the end of August.

The signing of Matteo Kovacic on loan from Real Madrid and Jorginho from Napoli further casted Bakayoko's future in doubt.

The 23- year-old France worldwide move to Stamford Bridge from dethroned Ligue 1 Champion Monaco one year ago, but he regularly found himself criticised for some of his performances by the Blues fans.

It has urged Washington to take reciprocal steps including officially declaring an end to the war and dropping sanctions. The warnings come just days after North Korea's foreign minister called U.S. actions "alarming".

Bakayoko did not feature for Chelsea in last Sunday's Community Shield defeat by Manchester City.

However, they have now confirmed the signing of Los Blancos midfielder Mateo Kovacic.

With N'Golo Kante still to return, Sarri's first-choice midfield is shaping to include Jorginho and Fabregas alongside the diminutive Frenchman.

AC Milan, on the other hand, are looking to add a player of Bakayoko's quality to their side after an already impressive transfer window which has seen them acquire Gonzalo Higuain and Mattia Caldara from Juventus.

As the news emerged, Chelsea fans on Twitter erupted with joy. However, at AC Milan he could get regular football and possibly shine for his style of play.
