According to Goal, the midfielder is attracting interest from OGC Nice ahead of a potential transfer this summer.
However, interested clubs must remain patient as Thomas Tuchel wants to give Bakayoko the chance to impress in pre-season training ahead of the new season.
Chelsea are reportedly looking for somewhere between € 15-20million for the midfielder as the club seek to get rid of their deadwood.
What did Bakayoko’s agent say?
Bakayoko’s agent Marco Busiello said: “The problem is precisely this. There are two ways: either Bakayoko is loaned out with a repayment obligation by June 30, 2022, or he has to renew for another year with Chelsea. Otherwise, the player must leave immediately and permanently.“Bakayoko had a great experience in Milan, just as the Rossoneri club found a very serious player who left good memories, “We had a meeting a few weeks ago with the Milan officials who are looking for a player for this position. It is a particular market, in which you have to sell before you buy. Beyond Bakayoko, I believe a lot of hits will come later because clubs have to place some players first before picking up others.
“It’s an idea, not so much Bakayoko, but Milan wants to do something in this role. Baka left good memories and he has fond memories of Milan. The Rossoneri have to do something in this position, so we had normal discussions that occur in these situations. “
