Reports from the Daily Star claims Chelsea will look to sign Ivory Coast midfielder Franck Kessie in exchange for £40million flop Tiemoue Bakayoko.

The France international Bakayoko only arrived at Stamford Bridge in 2017 from Monaco but is already being linked with a departure from the west London club.

The 24-year-old failed to convince former manager Antonio Conte of his abilities before being sent on a season-long loan last summer.

After a slow start in Milan, Bakayoko is beginning to show his ability and has admitted he would be interested in making his loan move permanent at the end of the season.

The France midfielder’s loan deal expires at the end of the season, but the Rossoneri do have the option to buy.

Similarly, Milan are obligated to purchase Kessie from Atalanta when his two-year loan is up at the end of the term, and the Blues are keen that he immediately be shipped off to London.
