AC Milan are reportedly eager to sign Chelsea loanee Tiemoue Bakayoko on a permanent basis.
Bakayoko has been on loan at San Siro since the start of the season, having endured a difficult debut campaign at Stamford Bridge following his move from Monaco.
The France international initially struggled to settle in at Milan too, and reports suggested that his loan could be cut short, but the Serie A outfit are now understood to have changed their minds.
Discussions are already underway over a deal, with Bakayoko also open to the move as he looks to put his Chelsea struggles behind him.
Milan reportedly value Bakayoko at around €40m (£35.6m), which would see Chelsea lose money on the player having signed him for £40m.
