Milan are eyeing Bakayoko for a possible move to the San Siro this summer

To say Bakayoko has been poor for the Blues since his move from Monaco last summer would be an understatement, with the French international seriously struggling to adapt to the English game last season.

Towards the end of the campaign, Bakayoko often found himself watching gamez from the subs bench, with stars like N’Golo Kante and Cesc Fabregas constantly keeping the midfielder out of the team.

Chelsea fans would’ve been bitterly disappointed with the way Bakayoko performed last year given how impressive he was for Monaco in the 2016/17 season.

The Frenchman played a big part in Monaco winning their eighth Ligue 1 title, with Bakayoko also proving to be good in their run to the Champions League semi finals.

Bakayoko moving to Milan could be a smart choice, as he would be able to reassure himself as one of the most talented young midfielders in Europe with the Italian giants if things go his way.
