Man United have made move but Arsenal ‘are interested’ in doing shock £25 million Bakayoko deal with Chelsea!
More shock reports have emerged which have suggested Arsenal will now rivals Manchester United for the signature of Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko.
There have been some shock reports in the media which have claimed Manchester United have made contact with Chelsea about a possible deal for Tiemoue Bakayoko and submitted and enquiry for the midfielder.
The midfielder spent 2018/19 on loan at AC Milan and despite his good moments, his time in Italy ended badly after being victim of racist abuse by a group of Lazio fans.
However, there has been a lot of transfer speculation in the media over the past few months which have suggested that French giants PSG may be interested in trying to take him to Ligue 1 this summer, with an offer of around £25 million on the cards.
Chelsea are unable to sign any players this transfer window, but Blues boss Frank Lampard already has a number of midfielders in the squad, meaning that he would be open to the idea of selling.
But according to reports on the RMC website, United have made contact with Chelsea about a possible deal for the Frenchman as they line-up an immediate replacement for Paul Pogba.
But the report has also suggested that Arsenal are interested in trying to sign the midfielder, with Unai Emery keen to add a pit of power to his midfield.
The Gunners boss does not have a lot of money to play with this transfer window and is keen to try and sign the Chelsea midfielder for a fee of around £25 million.
Bakayoko is currently with the Chelsea squad for their pre-season tour of Ireland and Lampard will run the rule over Bakayoko before deciding whether or not to let him leave.
Bakayoko has a fresh chance to shine at Chelsea after failing so miserably first time around, but many are tipping him to leave for Lige 1 as he does not have the ability to make a real impact on that Chelsea midfield.
SO the idea that he could make a move to Old Trafford or Arsenal for a bigger fee than the £25 million that he is valued at could be a great bit of business by Chelsea, if they do decide to a deal, and bad news for United or the Gunners.
