Tiemoue Bakayoko is undergoing an AC Milan medical ahead of joining the club from Chelsea on a two-year deal with an option to buy.

Bakayoko was identified by Milan as a summer target back in June when Sky Sports News reported the Serie A side also wanted Chelsea pair Olivier Giroud and Hakim Ziyech.

Giroud completed his move to Milan in July, and now Bakayoko - who spent the 2018/19 season on loan at the club - is nearing a return to Italy.
