Chelsea fans are pleased about getting rid of Tiemoue Bakayoko, with the youngster ready to be shipped out.

The midfielder is set for a loan switch to Serie A side AC Milan. The deal will see Milan have the option to buy the 23-year-old at the end of the season. Chelsea has slapped on a £35 million price tag to try and recoup what they paid for him last season.

The deal remains incomplete subject to a medical, but the player is in Italy and ready to finalise the move.

Bakayoko has had a strained relationship with the Chelsea supporters, most of whom have barely rated him.

With Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic arriving this season, chances for Bakayoko to impress have since become limited.

Here’s what the supporters had to say about potentially losing the Frenchman to AC and his performances overall:

A reprieve for Bakayoko is surely out of the question. Having included the option to buy offer to AC, it shows that Mauruizio Sarri certainly sees life without the 23-year-old.

And after a convincing 3-0 win at Huddersfield Town, fans have been raving at the prospect of Jorginho and Kovacic in the midfield.

With a plethora of options at Sarri’s disposal, Bakayoko would appear to have played his last game for the club.

Next up for Chelsea is Arsenal at home in a must-win clash next Saturday.
