Juventus are reportedly considering a shock transfer swoop for the London giants midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko this transfer window. The 26-year-old midfielder has emerged as a target for the Bianconeri as they consider options to Sassuolo star Manuel Locatelli.
One imagines Tiemoue will be available on the cheap after failing to make an impact in his time at Chelsea, having instead of being sent out on loan on several occasions.
Bakayoko has had two spells on loan in Italy with Milan and Napoli and a stint back at his former team Monaco, but it now seems the midfielder could earn a big shock move to Old Lady. France international’s considered a bargain option to Manuel Locatelli, with the Blues set to let the midfielder go for only €16m.
Chelsea supporters won’t be too frustrated to see the back of this footballer, who has proven to be one of their worst additions of recent times. The French midfielder initially looked like a promising talent in his first spell with Monaco, but the footballer just never got going once the Blues snapped him up in the summer of 2017.
It has recently been reported that new Napoli manager Luciano Spalletti has reportedly asked the team president Aurelio De Laurentiis to do all he can to keep Bakayoko, who was on loan at Milan last campaign. The Blues have a stacked midfield, and with Tiemoue yet to feature in pre-season, he is ready for the London club departure.
However, it appears that Napoli could be Tiemoue’s destination as the Italian giants could bring the midfielder in on a second successive loan move. Serie A giants are also interested in Emerson Palmieri, who is ready to leave the Blues this transfer window.
