AC MILAN are reportedly weighing up a swoop for Chelsea’s Tiemoue Bakayoko.
The midfielder suffered a poor debut campaign at Stamford Bridge following his move from Monaco 12 months ago.
And Italian sport journalist Gianluca Di Marzio claims the Serie A giants are ready to end his Premier League misery.
Milan, who successfully won an appeal to stay in the Europa League this month, are desperately trying to overhaul their squad this summer.
Boss Gennaro Gattuso wants to add to every department, but midfield is believed to be one of his top priorities.
And the report states the French international is being considered along with Red Bull Salzburg’s Diadie Samassekou as the man to lead to govern the Serie A side in the middle of the pitch this season.
Chelsea forked out £40m to bring Bakayoko to England but the star has failed to hit top form in West London.
He struggled to cement his place in the Blues starting XI under Antonio Conte.
However, despite Maurizio Sarri’s arrival in the dug-out, the FA Cup holders are believed to be ready to cut their losses on the ace.
And selling him to Milan could raise extra funds for the Italian to bring in new additions to bolster his Blues squad.
