French trio in contact with Chelsea midfielder Bakayoko

The Ligue 1 race for Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko is heating up.

The France international has been encouraged by Chelsea to find himself a new club this summer after spending the past season on-loan with AS Monaco.

PSG have made contact, while Le 10 Sport says Nice have also expressed interest.

And a third French club have now come forward in Lyon, though Bakayoko's €5m-a-year personal demands are out of reach.

For his part, Bakayoko's big hope is to return to AC Milan for next season.
