"The following season he moved to Monaco, where he made 63 appearances over three seasons and helped them win the title in 2016/17.

"Chelsea acquired his services in the summer of 2017 and the midfielder played 29 games in the Premier League and Champions League scoring two goals. He also won an FA Cup winners' medal with the Blues.

"Tiemoue spent the 2018/19 season at AC Milan on loan, racking up 31 appearances for the Rossoneri with a goal in the Milan derby.

"He then rejoined Monaco on loan for the 2019/2020 campaign, before returning to Chelsea this summer.

Bakayoko also has 13 France caps to his name".

The French midfielder joins the Stadio San Paolo on a dry loan and according to Calciomercato.com, Chelsea will pay half of his wages during the current season.

Bakayoko had been linked with a return to Milan where he played on loan in the 2018-19 campaign under Rino Gattuso.

The Italian coach had requested his services to strengthen the Azzurri team in the middle of the park and Napoli managed to bring him back to Serie A.

Napoli have also announced that their defender Sebastiano Luperto has joined Crotone on loan until the end of the season.
