Agent: ‘Napoli permanent move a priority for Bakayoko’

The agent of Tiemoue Bakayoko confirms a permanent move to Napoli is a priority for the Chelsea loanee although it is still ‘too early to talk about it.’

The French midfielder scored his first goal in a Napoli shirt against Udinese on Sunday.

“He is very happy for his first goal, it’s been a long time since he had scored the last one,” his brother and agent Abdoulaye told Radio Marte.

“The goal has boosted his self-esteem, he always want to help the team.”

The former Milan midfielder joined Napoli on a dry loan deal from Chelsea in October, but would he like to move to the Stadio Maradona permanently?

“It’s too early to talk about that, there are many things that must be considered," the player's agent said.

“He is on loan until the end of the season and he hasn’t talked to the club yet, but staying at Napoli would be a nice opportunity, we’ll see.

“He has played for many clubs, but he is happy at Napoli, the results are there and this club would be an ideal option for the future.

“Napoli are Scudetto contenders, a positive ending is in everyone’s interest. Napoli will be his priority in June.”
