Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko a target for Newcastle United

According to a report from Le10 Sport (h/t, Chelsea outcast Tiemoue Bakayoko could get a chance to stay in the Premier League next season as Newcastle United are interested in a summer swoop.

Bakayoko signed for Chelsea from AS Monaco in 2017 in a £40m deal. But the midfielder endured a difficult time in England. Having been unable to establish himself as a regular at Stamford Bridge, the Frenchman was loaned out to AC Milan last season, where he had a mixed campaign.

So, a switch away from the Stamford Bridge, on a permanent basis this time out, would be in the best interest of all parties involved. But it remains to be seen if Newcastle United back up the interest with an offer once the transfer window is open for business.
