PSG jump ahead of AC Milan for Chelsea midfielder Bakayoko

PSG have entered talks with Chelsea to take Tiemoue Bakayoko on-loan.

Goal says AC Milan were hopeful of agreeing a permanent deal for Bakayoko but have been frustrated by Chelsea's asking price, with PSG now the front-runners to complete a move.

PSG's sporting director Leonardo is leading the discussions with Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia with the deal set to be a season-long loan with an obligation-to-buy.

The Blues may be open to a £2.75million loan fee but would prefer to sell the midfielder permanently.

Bakayoko was signed by Antonio Conte in 2017 but struggled to adapt to English football, despite making 43 appearances in his first season.
