OYOGist.com has learned that the Blues have reached an agreement with Napoli for the €20m (£17.95m) sale of midfield maestro Tiemoue Bakayoko, according to a report.
The french International Bakayoko struggled to make an impression in his 1st season at Stamford Bridge in 2017-18 and has spent the subsequent 3 campaigns away on loan.
Following stints with AC Milan and Monaco, the France International now finds himself at Stadio San Paolo, where he’s once again working under Former-Milan Coach Gennaro Gattuso.
Napoli paid €2m (£1.8m) to take Tiemoue Bakayoko on loan for the campaign, and Gazzetta dello Sport claims that an arrangement is already in place for a permanent transfer to go through next summer.
The French midfield maestro has played 6 times for Napoli in all competitions so far this season, assisting 1 goal and failing to find the net.
