AC Milan remain interested to sign £31m-rated Chelsea anchorman

By | July 13, 2020

Serie A giants AC Milan allegedly remain interested in trying to secure services of Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko during the upcoming summer transfer window.

Earlier this week, it was reported that the Italian heavyweights were open to signing Burnley midfield star Jeff Hendrick, who will currently depart from Turf Moor on a free transfer later in 2020.

That development could have been perceived as Serie A giants ending their effort to secure a reunion with their former player who has spent a loan spell at San Siro.

However, according to Calciomercato, the Frenchman and Hendrick are two players on a shortlist of six potential targets.

The report suggests that Benfica’s Florentino Luis, Nice’s Khephren Thuram Nantes’ Imran Louza and AZ’s Teun Koopmeiners are also being considered.

Regarding Bakayoko, one potential stumbling block could be the Blues valuation, believed to be set at £31m.

Meanwhile, La Liga giants Real Madrid have reportedly rejected the chance to secure services for Chelsea forward Willian.

Having failed to agree on fresh terms with the West London club hierarchy, the Brazilian forward is expected to depart from Stamford Bridge on a free transfer after the end of the current campaign.

While Tottenham Hotspur have been rumoured with the South American forward due to his desire to stay in London, a move abroad stays a possibility.

However, according to The Mirror, the Brazil international forward will not be making a move to Santiago Bernabeu later in 2020.
