Chelsea are fighting back a potential transfer ban that would stop them from registering new players for the next two transfer windows. But that will not stop a host of clubs coming to pinch their stars, with several players mooted for departures this year. Some that have been linked with moves away from Stamford Bridge include Eden Hazard, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Willian. However, another duo that look likely to be leaving London this summer are Bakayoko and Emerson – the former who is already on loan away from the club at AC Milan.  The Frenchman was signed in the summer of 2017 but an atrocious debut year led to Maurizio Sarri, who arrived last year, offloading him to the San Siro outfit. Since moving to Italy, the ex-Monaco man has improved vastly and is now one of the first names on Gennaro Gattuso’s team-sheet. There is a strong chance that Milan will make the loan permanent, with a clause already in place meaning that a bid of £35m will be enough to secure the midfielder. And TuttoMercatoWeb are now reporting that their transfer interest does not stop there and Emerson is also in their sights.  The left-back has struggled for game-time since joining last January but has recently taken the mantle of first-choice from Marcos Alonso. The Spaniard has suffered from a shocking run of form that has allowed the ex-Roma man to stake a place in the starting XI. Milan are not happy with their current option in Ricardo Rodriguez, who has failed to hit the heights he promised when joining in 2017. Furthermore, TuttoMercatoWeb report that the strong relationship shared between the clubs will help the double deal along.  Bakayoko looks set to stay in Milan after confessing to his own strong relationship with the Rossoneri manager. He said on Gattuso: ”It’s clear that we have a very good relationship. “We have the same idea of football and for me, he is a little bit like a father, we talk about everything, whether it is related to the field or not. “I am happy to have him as my coach.”
