EXCLUSIVE: Agent urges Chelsea fans to 'give great Tiemoue Bakayoko time'

Chelsea fans have been urged to stay patient when it comes to Tiemoue Bakayoko's progress in the Premier League.

The midfielder has struggled to win over a section of the Blues support this season as he has battled to adjust to the hurly burly of English football.

However, Italian agent and French transfer market expert Fabrizio Ferrari is adamant Bakayoko will prove value for money at Chelsea.

Ferrari, who took Michael Essien from Chelsea to AC Milan, told Tribalfootball.com: "Bakayoko is a great player, with a very important physical structure and for this reason he has less kilometers in his legs compared to other midfielders.

"By the way, he is very a talented player!

"He needs to find the correct position in (Antonio) Conte's system and he needs to adapt to a very different league from Ligue 1. Give him time."
