The AC Milan management is working on many fronts to further improve the squad at Stefano Pioli’s disposal. One of the departments to be reinforced is also the midfield, as Maldini looks to add an alternative to Franck Kessie in the Rossoneri lineup.
And one of the hottest names on the director’s list is that of Tiemoue Bakayoko, who played for Milan during the 2018/19 season, making a very positive impression.
And even in the last two seasons, the Frenchman seemed close to returning, but eventually joined Monaco and Napoli, both on loan.
According to Tuttosport (via Milanlive.it), Bakayoko would be a safe choice for Milan and the player will definitely leave Chelsea by the end of August.
The Turin-based paper adds that an important meeting will take place next week between the Premier League club and Milan to define the chances of the Rossoneri bringing the player back to Milanello.
However, it must also be noted that not only Milan are interested in the player, but also Napoli and Juventus, who reportedly consider the player an alternative to Locatelli.
