Napoli are reportedly no longer willing to meet Chelsea’s £15m transfer fee for Bakayoko following his drop in form after initially impressing for the Italian club.

Bakayoko is reportedly keen on staying at Napoli permanently though his agent and brother Abdoulaye insists Bakayoko is not thinking about the future just yet.

He told Si gonfia la rete : “He is focused on finishing the season. The goal is obviously the Champions League, he is recharging the batteries for these remaining matches.

“Not an easy moment? I think this drop in form was common to the whole team.

“He arrived on loan and there were high expectations of him and therefore he ended up more in the crosshairs of critics, he may be an example of the moment.

“He is very focused on this situation of chasing the Champions League.

“In the last few weeks, the situation has been this but it has involved the whole team.”
