The Chelsea future of Tiemoue Bakayoko has come under the transfer speculation spotlight in the last forty-eight hours.

The French midfielder, signed last summer from Monaco, could be set to head out of the Stamford Bridge exit before the window slams shut late this afternoon.

Bakayoko, 23-years-of-age, had a disappointing first season with Chelsea, despite a bright start in the opening fixture, at Wembley, against Tottenham Hotspur.

With Chelsea having brought in Jorginho, on a permanent basis, whilst also adding Kovacic on a temporary basis, opportunities for Bakayoko to get regular game time could be very limited.

On the basis of the above assumption, here at Vital Chelsea, we’d deem Bakayoko to be surplus to requirements.

Therefore, we’re not too surprised that, according to the popular tabloid publication, the Sun, there is interest in the player from mainland Europe.

Our source is inferring that AC Milan are keen to take the player, on loan, with Chelsea having given Bakayoko the opportunity to discuss the move.

The players’ poor form last season, I reckon, won’t have many of the Vital Chelsea fraternity mourning his departure.

Perhaps, a season away, in a different league, could see the player rediscover his form.

Here at Vital Chelsea, we’ll keep a watchful eye on the situation and report back as deemed appropriate.

  • I had fond hopes of his becoming the next Yaya Toure …. but will it be for us ? Looks doubtful now …. i feel we should not sell him, just loan him out …. he can be really good in time

  • @24…struggling to control the ball. @24….less than 50% pass success. @24…..lack of positional awareness. I have my doubt but Im also willing to take the gamble and wait on him. A loan deal should be good for both parties.

  • Well same story for Lukaku while he was here, and now that he’s gone, everyone thinks he’s some sort of magician. (nevermind that he had some of the biggest donkey moments of the World Cup) While he’s slightly improved, I’m still happy that he’s somewhere else. I’ve never really tore into Bakayoko, but he’s definitely a long way from the finished product, and is currently getting shown up by academy products. So that doesn’t give me great hope for the future. I’d rather see Batshuayi come back, and focus on his promise. We could use to have a guy like Bakoyoko off the payroll, if we’re truly going to use the youths.

  • He did not go today, but the Euro windows are open until the end of the month, neither did DD either.

    The one i am worried about is Mitchy to Valencia, he has the most chance of scoring, over Morata,Tammy and Giroud, yet he seems to be the one heading out (according to the media, which i hope is a load of BS ).
