Manchester United and Southampton watching Monaco midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko… but AC Milan in pole position to do deal

27 Sep

AC Milan have joined Manchester United and Southampton in the race to land highly-rated Monaco midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko.

The 22-year-old, who is also thought to be attracting the interest of Juventus, is now reportedly worth £22m and a battle to land his signature is set to take place.

Bakayoko is a France Under-21 international and has made 36 appearances for Monaco since joining them from Rennes in 2014.

Calciomercato have revealed that while Manchester United and Southampton have declared an interest, AC Milan are considered front-runners to seal the deal and will send scouts to keep tabs on the midfielder.

However, it is unlikely any deal for Bakayoko will happen during the next transfer window.
