Chelsea 24-year-old star insists he would like to join Paris Saint-Germain

Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko has opened the door to a future move to Paris Saint-Germain.

Bakayoko will return to Stamford Bridge this summer having spent a season on loan at AC Milan, making a total of 41 appearances for the Italian side in all competitions.

The 24-year-old may represent Chelsea during the next campaign due to the West Londoners potentially being unable to sign new players.

However, Bakayoko has his sights set on an eventual switch to Parc des Princes having been born in France’s capital.

The player told L’Equipe: “Yes, for sure, one day I would like to play in Paris. I cannot lie about it. It’s big for me and my loved ones. We are real Parisians.”

Bakayoko still has three years remaining on his contract with Chelsea.

Meanwhile, Chelsea defender Ola Aina is to complete a permanent transfer to Serie A side Torino following a loan spell.

The 22-year-old came through the Chelsea youth ranks and went on to make six appearances for the first team during the 2016-17 campaign under former boss Antonio Conte.

Following a spell with Hull in the Championship, Aina moved on loan to Torino for the 2018-19 season, playing 32 games and scoring once. The Italian club have exercised an option to make the deal permanent for the Nigerian international.
