Chelsea face being stuck with Bakayoko

Chelsea face being stuck with Tiemoue Bakayoko.

Gazzetta dello Sport says Napoli 'have no intention of buying him', with Chelsea asking for around £15m (€18m) for his signature.

It therefore appears likely that Bakayoko will return to Stamford Bridge this summer, before the club attempts to find another buyer, or perhaps more realistically, a club willing to take him on loan again.

If Napoli can finish well in their final two games of the season against Fiorentina and Verona to secure a Champions League place, then they might find the money for Bakayoko.

The France midfielder spent last season on-loan with Monaco.
