AC Milan has agreed on a deal to sign Tiemoue Bakayoko from Chelsea on a season-long loan with an option to buy for £35.56m, Sky in Italy are reporting.
Tiemoue Bakayoko is heading out of Chelsea, with AC Milan set to acquire the midfielder on a loan agreement which will include a €35 million (£31m/$40m) purchase option.
Bakayoko has been left disappointed by the fact he does not feature in the plans of new manager Maurizio Sarri, according to reports.
Chelsea has boosted their midfield options this summer with the high-profile signing of Jorginho from Napoli, a player Sarri knows well.
The 23-year-old only moved to Stamford Bridge in the summer of 2017, with a £40 million ($51m) deal securing his signature from Monaco, but he has been deemed surplus to requirements by Maurizio Sarri.
