Paper Talk: PSG prepare new Premier League raid for Chelsea flop

Date published: Sunday 18th August 2019 9:48 - Samuel Bannister

Paris Saint-Germain are readying a late swoop for a Chelsea midfielder, while Alexis Sanchez has made a decision on his links to Inter Milan – according to Sunday’s papers.



PSG are considering a last-minute move for Chelsea outcast Tiemoue Bakayoko, according to the Sunday Express.

Bakayoko spent last season away from Stamford Bridge on loan at AC Milan, and new manager Frank Lampard has little room for him in his own plans as well.

The French midfielder has not featured in a matchday squad under Lampard yet, with the Blues legend admitting he would have to make a decision that was best for all parties.

Bakayoko’s most likely next move appears to be a return to France, with former club Monaco pushing to take him back.

However, the Express claim that Paris Saint-Germain are now ready to test their resolve by launching their own bid for the 24-year-old, having monitored his progress since his £40m switch to Chelsea two years ago.

It would be a third midfield signing from the Premier League for the French champions this summer, having already acquired Ander Herrera from Manchester United and Idrissa Gueye from Everton.
