Chelsea to agree deal for the transfer of midfield marksman

Fulham are weighing in on deal for Chelsea and French midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko, this is according to reports.

Bakayoko arrived Chelsea in the summer of 2017 with the pedigree of a top-notch midfielder after helping Monaco clinch the Ligue 1 title.

The 24-year-old was given several chances by Antonio Conte but he struggled to impress in the colours of the Blues and hence, divided opinions among the fan base of the club. Majority of the fans asked that he be sold and his poor form saw him omitted from the Les Blues squad that conquered the World Cup in Russia.

He was sent on a loan spell to AC Milan in the summer but he has failed to convince Gattuso. Rife reports have indicated Milan will send the player back to Chelsea in the January transfer window.

And now, it is claimed that Fulham have signified interest in signing the midfielder on a loan spell in January. The London club are currently in the bottom of the Premier League log and they are looking to avoid relegation.

Meanwhile, Sarri bolstered the squad of Chelsea with midfielders, leaving Bakayoko with  no chance of playing in the first team of the squad.
