Tiemoue Bakayoko is set to join AC Milan on loan with a view to a permanent deal, according to reports in the British media.

Website Goal, as quoted by The Sun, is reporting that the midfielder is closing in on a season-long loan switch to the Italian side in a move that could become permanent next summer.

Bakayoko signed for Chelsea FC from Monaco last summer but he struggled to make much of an impact at Stamford Bridge in his first campaign and was criticised for his inconsistent performances.

Now, it is being claimed in the same story that a loan move for him to switch to AC Milan for the season is imminent.

According to the same story, new Chelsea FC manager Maurizio Sarri has deemed Bakayoko to be surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge and has told the midfielder that he is free to leave the west London club.

Meanwhile, Chelsea FC kicked off their new Premier League season on a positive note by beating Huddersfield Town 3-0 in their opener on Saturday afternoon.

The Blues will now switch their attentions towards their crunch Premier League clash against Arsenal at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening.
