The Blues have turned their attentions towards signing Corentin Tolisso from Lyon this summer.
These reports are coming out of France, but, apparently Chelsea have become tired of talks trying to sign Bakayoko and are ready to switch their focus onto landing 22-year-old Tolisso.
Then, The same report is claiming that Bakayoko is valued at around £42m, while Lyon midfielder Tolisso would most likely cost only half of that figure.
We know that Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas was reported to have already flown to London for talks with Chelsea about the possible transfer of Tolisso.
So which way this will go is anybodies guess.
The Blues will be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as Antonio Conte prepares his team for a return to the Champions League next season.
