AC Milan are beginning to consider alternatives to Tiemoue Bakayoko after a slowdown in negotiations, according to a report.
MilanNews are claiming that the negotiations between Milan and Chelsea are still underway for Bakayoko, but they have suffered a slowdown.
Contacts between the clubs and the player will continue over the next few days, with the player pushing to return to the Rossoneri, but it appears Chelsea are not backing down on their demands which means things have not gone as quick as Milan wanted.
Therefore, alternatives have to be considered just in case. Florentino Luis of Benfica is a profile that the management like, but dealing with the Portuguese is always difficult and will be evaluated in the coming weeks.
Even the Boubakary Soumaré idea does not go away, but Matteo Pessina of Atalanta and Gerard Deulofeu are no objectives at the moment, despite the Spaniard having offered himself to Milan several times through his agent.
