Tiemoue Bakayoko linked with loan move to AC Milan

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey

Goal revealed on Wednesday that a deal for the Croatia global was nudging Bakayoko towards the exits, with the Frenchman in talks with AC Milan a year on from a £40 million ($52m) move from Monaco.

Tiemoue Bakayoko is close to leaving Chelsea.

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri admits that is squad at Stamford Bridge is "too large" and that players will leave before the end of August.

Kovacic has been strongly linked with a move to Stamford Bridge in recent weeks after deciding it was time to leave Madrid having struggled to establish himself as a first team regular at the Bernabeu since arriving from Inter Milan in 2015. The report claims that the eventual agreement is likely to include an option to buy.

Bakayoko joined Chelsea last summer from Monaco in a £40 million deal and started 25 Premier League games.

IRS agent testifies that Manafort had $16.5M United States in unreported income
Special counsel Robert Mueller's team has repeatedly clashed in the Paul Manafort case with the Judge T.S. Downing argued it was fair game because Gates had suggested on the stand he only had one affair.

Kovacic joins the club as part of the deal that sees Thibaut Courtois complete his move to Real, subject to the agreement of personal terms and a medical.

He featured in all four of their pre-season friendlies but was absent from the squad for their Community Shield defeat to Manchester City a week ago.

Chelsea may have signed Jorginho and be on the verge of landing Mateo Kovacic, but they aren't giving up on Bakayoko entirely, and plan to loan him out this month. He had been hoping to make more of an impression on the former Napoli coach Sarri but it now seems that he won't get the chance.

Former Chelsea captain Dennis Wise believes Alvaro Morata can enjoy a big season with the Blues.
