Tiemoue Bakayoko would find it difficult to turn down interest from Paris Saint-Germain, according to his agent and brother.

Bakayoko has emerged as one of the most-coveted commodities throughout Europe, with the central midfielder impressing this season for Ligue Un leaders and Champions League quarter-finalists Monaco.

Both Chelsea and Manchester United have long been credited with an interest in the Frenchman, while it is reported that Bakayoko himself turned down a move to Arsenal after meeting with manager Arsene Wenger.

The 22-year-old has made 41 appearances for Monaco this season, starting all but one of their Champions League games, and scoring the decisive goal against Manchester City in the round of 16.

But according to his agent and brother Soualio, the midfielder would find it hard to reject overtures from French giants PSG.

“We’ve talked about it because he’s Parisien,” he told ESPN.

“When he was young, he wanted to go to PSG,” he said. “He has always dreamed of PSG.

“When I said to him, ‘Imagine, one day, you sign for PSG,’ he told me, ‘I would really like that. If they offer me that, I do not see why I would refuse.’

“But he said, ‘I have time. If I have to go to PSG, I will go, that is all.'”
