Transfer rumours

Spanish side Sevilla is interested in signing Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko on loan.

Bakayoko was on loan last season with AC Milan and was expected to stay with the Italian side following his performance. However, that is unlikely due to the club’s failure to secure Champions League season. Seville based publication Estadio Deportivo is reporting that Sevilla is keen to land Bakayoko on loan with the defender’s future with Milan thrown to a doubt.

Last week, Bakayoko's brother and agent Abdoulaye Bakayoko stated that the young midfielder will be staying at Chelsea after a season on loan at AC Milan.

The 24-year-old joined Milan as a Chelsea reject coming off a pretty awful season, and things didn’t start any better in Italy. His initial performances were bad enough to be publicly lambasted by his then manager, Gennaro Gattuso, who called him a player with, "defects" and stated that he would have liked to manage other, more experienced players.
