La Liga outfit Sevilla have targeted a summer move for Chelsea flop Tiemoue Bakayoko, according to a report.

The former Monaco midfielder struggled to make an impact in the Premier League last season and Paris United via Get French Football News claim Sevilla want to sign the player on loan.

The report claims that Sevilla will pay up to 90% of the 23-year-old’s salary while he is on a season-long loan in Spain.

Bakayoko, who cost £39.7million when he arrived last summer, has failed to make his mark alongside N’Golo Kante – making 24 Premier League starts last season for the Blues.

The Paris-born defensive midfielder was an Antonio Conte recruit last summer and it remains to be seen whether Maurizio Sarri, who is close to being appointed the new Chelsea boss, will fancy Bakayoko.


Former Chelsea boss Sarri is also expected to bring Jorginho to Stamford Bridge, with the player already believed to have travelled to London for talks.
