Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko is reportedly closing to sign with the Rossenieri. The Transfer window might have elapsed for players intended to join English clubs, but the general transfer window remains open for players open to a move away from the club.

According to Tuttosport, the Italian club is willing to bring the Frenchman to Italy on loan deal with option to buy in the next summer.

The Chelsea team currently looks choked up particularly at the middle of the park since the arrival of Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic. Reports have emerged that the Chelsea manager is willing to let some players go as he hopes to effectively utilize his squad.

Bakayoko who arrived from Monaco in 2017 for a reported £40 million failed to live up to expectation. The Frenchman was one of the villain in Chelsea’s failure to secure top four finish last season.

Reports have it that Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri have already decided the fate of the former Monaco player but is willing to give him a lifeline till the summer transfer window officially ends.

What remains is how quickly Antonio Conte and his Milan club will act towards securing the player’s signature.
