The agent of Chelsea outcast Tiemoue Bakayoko has claimed that the midfielder would love to make his loan move to Napoli permanent in the summer.
Bakayoko struggled to adapt to the Premier League in his first season at Chelsea and has since been loaned out to AC Milan, former club Monaco and now Napoli.
The 26-year-old has become an important player for Gennaro Gattuso this season, and his agent and brother Abdoulaye Bakayoko has said that Napoli will be the “priority” for the player come the summer.
Speaking to Radio Marte, Abdoulaye Bakayoko said: “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 recently netted his first goal for the Partenopei in Sunday’s 2-1 triumph over Udinese, and his contract at Chelsea will expire in 18 months’ time.
