Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko is set to return to Chelsea this summer after Napoli opted against making his contract at the club permanent.

The 26-year-old – who joined Napoli on loan from Chelsea in October – has made 36 appearances across all competitions for Gennaro Gattuso’s men this season, scoring one goal and providing two assists.

However, as per Football Italia, Bakayoko has dropped down the pecking order in recent months.

Bakayoko is now expected to return to Chelsea this summer upon the completion of his loan, with Napoli having no intention of acquiring him permanently.

Bakayoko will enter the final year of his Chelsea contract in June. The Frenchman has spent the last three seasons on loan at AC Milan, Monaco and Napoli.
