Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko has failed to impress for Chelsea since sealing a £40m move from Monaco back in 2017.

The 26-year-old has since had loan spells with AC Milan, Monaco and now Napoli, where he has been very impressive.

Tiemoue Bakayoko’s brother and agent Abdoulaye Bakayoko, has now revealed that the Chelsea loanee may be keen on staying permanently with Napoli, but hasn’t talked to the club yet.

“It’s too early to talk about that [a permanent move], there are many things that must be considered,” Abdoulaye Bakayoko told Radio Marte about Bakayoko’s likely future.

“He is on loan until the end of the season and he hasn’t talked to the club yet, but staying at Napoli would be a nice opportunity, so we will see.

“He has played for many clubs, but he is happy at Napoli. The results are there and this club would be an ideal option for the future.

“Napoli are title contenders; a positive ending is in everyone’s interest. Napoli will be his priority in June.”

Bakayoko scored a 90th minute winner to seal a 2-1 win for Napoli against Udinese.
