Nicolo Schira is reporting that despite the recent silence AC Milan and Tiemoue Bakayoko is a real possibility this summer that the player in particular is pushing for. The reporter notes that Bakayoko is willing to take a huge pay cut to make the move happen and has been waiting for the opportunity to close a deal for the past two months.

MilanNews.it are reporting that Bakayoko's name is definitely in the conversation but that the asking price of Chelsea needs to be adjusted and the wage of the player lowered. The outlet notes that the likely solution is a paid loan with an obligation to buy.

Louis Girardi is reporting that Bakayoko could switch positions at Milan playing as one of the attacking midfielders and not just as a rotation for Kessie and Bennacer. This would make sense as has often been deployed as a box to box midfielder with Monaco and Chelsea in the past.
