Lyon open Chelsea talks for Tiemoue Bakayoko

Lyon have opened talks for Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko.

While unwanted by Chelsea boss Frank Lampard for next season, Bakayoko isn't short of offers from across Europe.

A return to AC Milan has been mooted, while he is fielding growing interest from France.

Le 10 Sport says Lyon have approached Chelsea in the last 48 hours to register their interest and ask about a price for the midfielder.

Bakayoko's €5m-a-year demands are deemed as steep by OL, though there is a hope he can be talked down to accepting terms within their budget.
