It appears that Hernandez is now out of the running as Chelsea will accept defeat with the Frenchman extending his stay in Milan.

Calciomercato.com states that "Theo has never really taken into consideration offers from abroad, especially from Manchester City, Chelsea and Psg. His head has always remained focused on Milan."

Chelsea are still in the market for a wing-back, with Ben Chilwell ruled out until the end of the season.

It remains to be seen as to who will move for but it is reported that the Blues will make one final offer to recall Emerson Palmieri from his loan spell at Lyon.
