According to the agent of Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko, a permanent transfer to Italian club Napoli at the end of the season is a priority for the Chelsea midfielder.
Bakayoko joined the Serie A side on loan in October and has cemented his place in the first team with 18 appearances across all competitions.
“He is very happy for his first goal, it’s been a long time since he had scored the last one,” Abdoulaye Bakayoko told Radio Marte, as quoted by Football Italia.
“The goal has boosted his self-esteem, he always want to help the team.
“It’s too early to talk about that (making the move permanent), there are many things that must be considered.
“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, we’ll 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 Scudetto contenders, a positive ending is in everyone’s interest. Napoli will be his priority in June.”
Bakayoko joined Chelsea in a £40million deal in 2017 but with his contract expiring in 2022, Chelsea will likely have to settle for a smaller fee than the one we paid Monaco in 2017.
