Lyon step into race for Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko

Lyon have stepped into the race for Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko.

Get French Football News reports Bakayoko, 26, could be on his way to the beaten Champions League semi-finalists as they brace for Houssem Aouar's potential exit.

The Frenchman, who joined Chelsea from Monaco for £40million in 2017, has just returned from an unsuccessful loan spell at his former club.

It's reckoned AC Milan are leading the chase for Bakayoko after also taking him on loan two years ago.

Chelsea will look to recoup the £40m they spent on Bakayoko from Lyon, knowing they will be receiving more than that should Aoaur leave.
