"Why not?" Wise told the Chelsea-news-Alvaro-Morata-Dennis-Wise-Premier-League-Maurizio-Sarri-Gianfranco-Zola" Daily StarChelsea-news-Alvaro-Morata-Dennis-Wise-Premier-League-Maurizio-Sarri-Gianfranco-Zola" when asked if Chelsea could win the title. Now though Sky is reporting that talks are well advanced for Bakayoko, with a loan with option to buy being discussed.

The arrival of Mateo Kovacic at Stamford Bridge on loan from Real Madrid has further bolstered a midfield unit in west London which has already welcomed Jorginho this summer.

He struggled to make an impact in midfield for the Blues however, who could only finish fifth in the Premier League.

Do you think the Croatian improves Chelsea's starting XI?

Kovacic could be part of a deal which will see Thibaut Courtois moving to Real after going AWOL and missing two consecutive training sessions.

But Sarri insists there is no chance of Hazard leaving, even though he is understood to be some way off signing the £300,000-a-week contract extension that Chelsea have offered him.

Subject to the completion of the deal Mateo Kovacic will join the Blues on a season-long loan.

"I've always made it very clear that I've always been very happy playing for Chelsea". I have spoken with him three or four times for everything, and he never said something about the market.
