Bakayoko featured in all of Chelsea's pre-season games but was absent in the Community Shield encounter against Manchester City.

The midfielder cost Chelsea £40m last summer but has struggled to settle in west London.

Although Maurizio Sarri's new Chelsea isn't expected to move for another transfer, a potential Thibaut Courtois move to Real Madrid would see the Blues moving for his replacement, now thought to be Kepa Arrizabalaga. Bakayoko however failed to nail down a starting position in the team under former Chelsea manager Antonio Conte.

Discussing the size of his squad recently, Sarri said: "I think the squad is too large, so I think some players have to go on loan".

However, Sky Sport Italia reports that Milan are keen to get a deal done to sign Bakayoko and negotiations are at an advanced stage. I prefer to have 23-24 players, and three or four very young players.

Kovacic joins the club as part of the deal that sees Thibaut Courtois complete his move to Real, subject to the agreement of personal terms and a medical.

Chelsea could be set to bid farewell to two more players before the summer transfer window closes across Europe, with Dennis Wise expecting Danny Drinkwater and Tiemoue Bakayako to move on. "I always made it clear that what I wanted was to stay in the club".

Speaking after the game, he insisted that he is not looking to leave his current club while mentioning Barca's attempts to sign him.
