Chelsea could finalise double transfer deal with AC Milan
Chelsea could reportedly sanction the permanent sales of Tiemoue Bakayoko and Emerson Palmieri to AC Milan during this summer's transfer window.
The west London side opted to loan out Bakayoko to the Rossoneri at the beginning of the season, and the Frenchman has since transformed into a permanent midfield figure for the San Siro outfit.
According to Tuttomercatoweb, the Milan giants have the option to buy Bakayoko at the end of the season and they are likely to pay the £35m asking price to do so.
It is further added that the club will seek to utilise their close relationship with the Premier League giants in order to lure Emerson to the Serie A ahead of next season.
Ricardo Rodriguez has been the first-choice left-back for the Rossoneri in the past 21 months, but they are said to be considering the Swiss' future with his form having dipped during the current campaign.
Emerson, meanwhile, has recently jumped ahead of Marcos Alonso in the pecking order for the left-back role at Chelsea, but they are no assurances whether he can secure regular gametime in the long run.
