Paris Saint-Germain are weighing up a year-long loan move with a possible purchase option for Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko.
The 24-year-old, whose move to the Blues in 2017 saw him become the club’s then-second most expensive signing in their history, struggled to justify his price tag at Stamford Bridge and spent last season on loan with Milan in Serie A.
The former France international’s poor form continued initially after his move to Italy but he subsequently improved during the season, though he did not secure a permanent transfer to San Siro.
Having been initially sent out under Maurizio Sarri, it is not known whether Bakayoko figures in new manager Frank Lampard’s plans, but he has now been linked with a return to his home country with the Ligue 1 champions, at least on an interim basis, with sources confirming to Goal that PSG are interested in landing him on a year-long deal.
Bakayoko previously stressed that he intended to return to Chelsea following the end of his loan tenure in Italy but admitted that he would love to play for his hometown club.
