Chelsea are ready to sell six players in order to fund their summer spending campaign, a report claims, with Tiemoue Bakayoko one of them.
MilanNews reported last week that Monaco will not exercise their right to buy the 25-year-old, and that Milan dream of creating a Bennacer-Bakayoko pairing in midfield for next season.
Il Corriere dello Sport (as cited by TMW) added that Milan are hard at work to secure a return for Bakayoko and have begun talks, but Chelsea for now though are not backing down from the €42million transfer fee they agreed with Monaco.
According to the latest from The Sun, Bakayoko is among six players that Chelsea wish to sell to fund three big signings, the other five being Emerson Palmieri, Davide Zappacosta, Danny Drinkwater, Michy Batshuayi and Victor Moses
The Blues have already signed Hakim Ziyech and are close to being able to announce the capture of RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner, but they have now set their sights on Leverkusen playmaker Kai Havertz and Leicester left-back Ben Chilwell.
Chelsea are hoping to raise around €170m from the sale of the aforementioned players.
