Chelsea: Midfielder Closer to AC Milan Move, Kounde's Transfer Tightens, Zouma's Farewell

Tiemoue Bakayoko

AC Milan are hours away from completing the signing of Chelsea’s outcast Tiemoue Bakayoko for a reported two-year loan deal with an option to buy. Bakayoko has been very busy with regard to expediting his transfer move because he is very eager to rejoin the Italian juggernauts before the transfer deadline.

Napoli did not commit to signing the Frenchman following a dreadful loan spell last season where Napoli failed to qualify for the Champions League. Inside sources have disclosed that Bakayoko is very happy about his imminent transfer move, especially after it was confirmed by Luciano Pioli to the media today.

Jules Kounde

The transfer move of Jules Kounde from Sevilla to Chelsea has taken a new twist after it was rumored that Sevilla have raised their asking price for the defender. Kounde is impatiently waiting for his transfer move to be completed and has accordingly instructed his agent to liaise with Chelsea representatives so that they can hasten the process.

Chelsea are also pushing for the transfer because Kounde is considered as a replacement for Kurt Zouma who recently signed for West Ham on a permanent deal. Chelsea were waiting to finalize the transfer move of Zouma so that they could embark on signing Kounde but time seems not to be on their side. Will Chelsea sign Kounde before the deadline?

Kurt Zouma

Kurt Zouma has said his goodbyes to the Chelsea fans and the whole fraternity for giving him the best memories in his career. Zouma recently completed a move to West Ham and is expected to partner with Ogbonna in the center back position. His debut for the Hammers is expected to be in the upcoming match two weeks from today.
