  • Express Sport brings you the latest from the rest of the Premier League

Chelsea to sell Tiemoue Bakayoko

Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko has been told he has no future at Stamford Bridge.

The £40million signing has spent the last two seasons out on loan.

AC Milan and Monaco both passed on permanent options but the former are now considering a permanent swoop.

Chelsea are willing to accept an offer worth £20m for his services.

The Sun, however, claim Milan will bid an initial £13.5m.

Ben White to Liverpool transfer claim

Liverpool have been tipped to beat Leeds United in the chase for Brighton and Hove Albion defender Ben White.

Former Whites goalkeeper Paul Robinson told Football Insider: “I think he would start straight away alongside Van Dijk. They would be a formidable partnership.

“You see the way that Van Dijk has played with De Ligt for the Dutch national team. He always develops the players around him.

“White would be a shoo-in with Van Dijk to start. He would start the season and you would not get him out. He did not missed a game for Leeds last year.

“He has got a great affinity with Leeds, the club and the fans, but the offer of Champions League football and playing for the Premier League champions may just be too much of a lure.

“You hope that he has a bigger affinity with Leeds but if he went to a club like Liverpool he would get in and you would not get him out again.”

Jadon Sancho to Man Utd transfer twist

Borussia Dortmund plan to keep Jadon Sancho after Manchester United failed to meet their deadline for a deal.

The Bundesliga outfit were open to selling the England international before their pre-season camp, although the two clubs were miles apart in their valuations.

Dortmund chief Michael Zorc said: “We plan on having Jadon Sancho in our team this season, the decision is final. I think that answers all our questions.

He added: “Last summer, we adjusted Jadon’s salary to match the development of his performances. So in context, we had already extended his contract until 2023 back then.”

Willian to Arsenal transfer medical

Willian has undergone a medical ahead of a move to Arsenal.

The 32-year-old winger is a free agent after his contract at Chelsea expired.

Stamford Bridge bosses were eager to extend his deal but had no interest in meeting his demands for a three-year contract.

Arsenal are more willing so a move to the Emirates Stadium is on the cards.
