Chelsea boss Lampard eager to cash in on Bakayoko

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is eager to see Tiemoue Bakayoko cashed in.

The Frenchman has failed to live up to expectations at Stamford Bridge since his £40million move from Monaco in 2017.

France Football says Sevilla are willing to offer the midfielder, who was on-loan with AS Monaco this term, an escape route at the end of the season.

Bakayoko is under contract until 2022, but Chelsea are willing to let him leave permanently in the summer.

Lampard is determined to recoup some of the £40million transfer fee that the club forked out for him three years ago.

Bakayoko scored just one goal and made two assists in 23 appearances for Robert Moreno's side in Ligue 1.
