Gennaro Gattuso is happy with the French midfielder. The Italians want to ransom Tiemoue Bakayoko.
The 26-year-old French midfielder, Timoue Bakayoko, who belongs to London’s Chelsea, is currently on loan at Napoli. The French player has repeatedly expressed his desire to return to Serie A. He wanted to play again at the former club, Milan, but the Rossoneri did not work on his transfer, and the player was eventually asked by Napoli.
The publication FOOTBALL-ITALIA reports that the Serie A resident is satisfied with the game of Bakayoko. He has played in four of the last seven rounds of the Italian league this season. However, Gennaro Gattuso has already informed club officials that he needs a player and has given the green light to buy him out.
According to the above-mentioned source, Napoli is ready to pay 18 million to the “Aristocrats” to ransom Bakayoko. Although the current contract does not provide for the player’s redemption, Napoli hope that Chelsea will accept the offer. In the player’s lease, Aurelio de Laurentiis has already paid two million to the English. In the end, if the “Blues” agree to sell the French at the mentioned price, they will earn a total of 20 million in profit.
Here we inform you that the player’s current contract with the London team expires in the summer of 2022.
