CHELSEA flop Tiemoue Bakayoko is reportedly in line for a shock transfer from both Nottingham Forest and Newcastle United.
The revelation comes as AC Milan, who are currently on loan at the Frenchman, are looking to let go of the midfielder by halving his two-year loan deal.
While Bakayoko’s future at Chelsea is also in doubt, he may still have a future in the Premier League.
According to Calcio Mercato, both Forest and Newcastle want to sign him, while Serie A club AC Monza are also interested.
Milan directors Paolo Maldini and Frederic Massara want to sack the midfielder to ease their payroll – as he hasn’t played a single minute this season.
Newcastle are looking for an addition to their midfield after seemingly missing out on Lucas Paqueta as the Brazilian is set to join West Ham in a deal worth around £51million.
Forest, meanwhile, continue to stir disbelief as they continue to raid the transfer market for players – so far 18 have come through the door at The City Ground.
Today Forest announced Renan Lodi as their 18th signing of the summer.
Bakayoko joined Chelsea from Monaco in 2017 as a direct replacement for Nemanja Matic but was loaned to AC Milan just a year later.
In the following two years, Bakayoko was loaned out to Monaco and Napoli before returning to AC Milan for two years.
