Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko may likely join AC Milan on loan, according to Sky in Italy.

Bakayoko joined Chelsea from Monaco last summer for £40m and started 25 Premier League games in his first season in the Premier League.

The loan deal for Bakayoko may include an option to buy, according to the same source.

The French midfielder has been involved in Chelsea’s pre-season under new head coach Sarri and was included in the starting XI for their game with Lyon.

Jorginho is set to get the nod ahead of Bakayoko having joined from Napoli this summer, reuniting with manager Sarri.

The Italian player started Sunday’s Community Shield defeat by Manchester City at Wembley with Cesc Fabregas and Ross Barkley alongside him in midfield.

The Blues have also been linked with Real Madrid midfielder Mateo Kovacic ahead of what is set be a busy last couple of days before the summer window closes.

Kovacic could make a loan move to Stamford Bridge as part of a deal which takes goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois to Madrid.
