AC MILAN are on the verge of re-signing Tiemoue Bakayoko on loan from Chelsea, according to reports.
The midfielder hasn't played for the Blues competitively since May 2018.
He has since been shipped out on loan to Milan, AS Monaco and Napoli.
And he is reportedly set to return to the former – despite having his Chelsea contract extended.
Originally set to expire next summer, the Blues have used an option to extend the deal by another year.
But according to DiMarzio, they have no intention of reintegrating the Frenchman into the first-team squad.
Instead, the Italian claims that Bakayoko is on the verge of joining Milan.
And a deal could be finalised tonight.

Both clubs want to get the initial loan transfer done – and the 27-year-old could complete his medical tomorrow ahead of sealing the transfer over the weekend.
It is understood that Milan will possess an option to make the move permanent next summer.
Bakayoko, who joined Chelsea in 2017 for £40million, has made 43 appearances for the Blues in total.
He featured against Spurs in this summer's Mind Series, but isn't in Thomas Tuchel's plans.
The former France international is set to join Olivier Giroud in switching West London for Milan.
And he will come up against former team-mate Davide Zappacosta in Italy, with the wing-back having left the Blues for Atalanta this week.
