AC Milan are continuing negotiations with Chelsea for the signing of Tiemoue Bakayoko and want to get the deal closed soon, a report claims.
It has been reported over the last couple of weeks that Milan are in advanced talks with Chelsea over the signing of the Frenchman, who is understood to be desperate to return after a successful loan spell at the club in 2018-19.
However, things went a bit cold on the Bakayoko front as the management prioritised deals for Sandro Tonali and Brahim Diaz from Brescia and Real Madrid respectively.
According to SportMediaset (via MilanNews), the negotiations with Chelsea for Bakayoko are continuing, but Milan is in a hurry to close.
This is because the Rossoneri want the 26-year-old to be available already for the match on 17 September against Shamrock Rovers, in the second round of Europa League qualification.
The formula of the deal already seems to be set: it will be a loan with option to buy set at around €30m.
