Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko is set to join Serie A club Napoli on a season loan.

According to Daily Mail, the 26-year-old midfielder is to undergo a medical on Sunday ahead of linking up again with manager Rino Gattuso who was in charge during his loan spell with AC Milan.

Bakayoko has spent the last two seasons on loan at AC Milan and Monaco and the Blues were hoping to sell the Frenchman this summer to offset some of the club’s spending this summer.

Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia will be hoping the loan move to Napoli puts him in the shop window for a deal next summer.

Bakayoko joined Chelsea in the summer of 2017 after being part of the Monaco team that reached the Champions League semi-finals but his time at Chelsea has been disappointing.
