Chelsea to offload Tiemoue Bakayoko for Kai Havertz funds?
Chelsea are reportedly set to offload Tiemoue Bakayoko as part of their efforts to strike a deal for Bayer Leverkusen's Kai Havertz.
Bakayoko has failed to make his mark in the Premier League since arriving at Stamford Bridge from Monaco, and the midfielder has spent the 2019-20 campaign on loan with his former side following a one-year stint with AC Milan.
The Frenchman still has two years left to run on his current Chelsea deal, but Frank Lampard 's side are supposedly keen to cash in on the out-of-favour midfielder as soon as possible.
Indeed, The Express reports that Chelsea have set a relatively modest asking price of £18m for the 25-year-old as they look to make Havertz their newest recruit ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.
The Stamford Bridge faithful already have the arrivals of Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner to look forward to in the coming days, and Chelsea have also been linked with David Alaba and Ben Chilwell in recent weeks.
Bakayoko has turned out 43 times for Chelsea since his arrival in the English capital - registering three goals for the Blues in that time.
