New Blues coach Maurizio Sarri has informed the midfielder that he is not part of his Premier League plans for this season.

Bakayoko joined the Monaco Blues last summer for £ 40 million and started 25 Premier League matches.

But the 23-year-old struggled to adapt to the rhythm and physicality of the English game.

And Bakayoko & # 39; s is ready to be grown on loan to AC Milan later today, according to the Mirror.

Chelsea begins her campaign with a trip to Huddersfield on Saturday afternoon.

Sarri has abundant midfield options with new signing Jorginho, Ross Barkley, N & # 39; Golo Kante and Cesc Fabregas in the competition.

Real Madrid player, Mateo Kovacic, could also play a role, but he can be given more rest after the Croatia World Cup campaign.

Danny Drinkwater could also loan Stamford Bridge with several clubs competing for midfielder

"Some players have to go on loan," Sarri said yesterday. "I do not know who at this moment.

"I'd rather have 23 or 24 players and three or four players very young, no more."

Bakayoko could not meet his price tag

The Italian added that he is not taking the Terriers threat lightly, having done his homework on David Wagner's team.

"They won their first three games in the last season of the Premier League," he continued.

"Then, at this moment, they can be a very dangerous opponent, I have to do it week by week [to learn about the other teams], I believe.

"In preseason I was really very busy with other things, so I have to study week after week. "
