Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko is reported to be signed by West Ham United at the reopening of the transfer window.
For £40 m, the 25-year-old transferred to Chelsea from Monaco in 2017 but spent just one season at Stamford Bridge before being loaned out.
Bakayoko has spent the previous two seasons with AC Milan and back in Monaco respectively, although the latter is not expected at the end of this season to make his loan deal permanent.
Le 10 Sport claims, the Frenchman remains surplus to West London requirements and he could stay with West Ham in the capital.
Allegedly, the Hammers might be interested in a loan deal for Bakayoko, although they could face competition from AC Milan, although Paris Saint-Germain was previously also credited with an interest.
This season, in all competitions for Monaco, Bakayoko has featured 23 times scoring one goal and creating two more.
