According to a recent French source Le10Sport report, Premier League outfit West Ham United is said to be keen on a loan move in the summer for the services of French midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko from Chelsea. The article says the midfielder has been linked to teams such as Paris Saint-Germain, but at this stage, West Ham and AC Milan seem like the likeliest choices. It is further explained that the new contract of the Frenchman with the club Stamford Bridge lasts until the end of the league campaign in 2022.
Chelsea may have a chance to get the midfielder off their hands for the season with West Ham keen on a Tiemoue Bakayoko Loan offer.
Nevertheless, a permanent sale will be in line with the wishes of the gaffer. The Blues are said to be looking to get in the region of €35 m for the former AS Monaco man ‘s signature, and that this figure is what put Ligue 1 giants PSG off his trail. Frank Lampard ‘s side is searching for numerous signatures around various areas of the pitch, and the one thing they will all need is capital. While Roman Abramovich would probably finance a few deals, the club itself probably would have to work out the real big-money ones.
Given the kind of players they tend to be recruiting, it wouldn’t be shocking to see Chelsea hold on until a permanent alternative arrives this summer.
The 25-year-old arrived from Monaco at Stamford Bridge after a spectacular spell in the middle of the park that led the Ligue 1 side that season to an unexpected victory. Huge expectations were put on the shoulders of the midfielder even before he arrived, having profoundly impressed all through the campaign.
The London club has approved the transfer of Serbia’s midfielder Nemanja Matic to league rivals Manchester United, in anticipation of his imminent injection into the side.
