Tiemoue Bakayoko will stay at Chelsea beyond this summer unless there is an irresistible offer on the table, his agent has confirmed.
The Frenchman struggled in his first season in the Premier League and has been heavily linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge, particularly after the arrival of Jorginho.
Its been suggested that the midfielder will struggle to adapt to new manager Maurizio Sarris style of play and he was thought to have held talks with Sevilla over a potential loan move.
Both Milan clubs are also said to be keen on a move for the 23-year-old, who arrived at Chelsea in a £40million move from Monaco last summer.

However, Bakayokos entourage confirmed to RMC Sport that he will be staying put unless there is a huge offer on the table.
Chelsea are unwilling to sell the France international on the cheap having forked out so much money on him and Bakayoko is determined to fight for his place.
Circumstances may change if one of the potential suitors puts together an irresistible financial package for both Chelsea and the player, but Bakayoko is expecting to stay in west London.
