Serie A side Napoli signs Chelsea’s French international midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko on a season-long loan as he arrives in Rome on Sunday for his medical, according to media reports in Italy.
The 26-year-old plied his trade last season in the League 1 with his former side Monaco, having played for AC Milan during the 2018-2019 season, under the now Napoli boss Gennaro Gattuso.
Bakayoko, who joined Chelsea in 2017 after three seasons with Monaco, will undergo medical tests in the Italian capital before a one-season loan move.
Napoli is expected to take on two million euros ($2.3 million) of the player’s annual 3.5 million salary, according to Gazzetta Dello Sport.
Tiemoue Bakayoko, who has one cap for France, will join up with his new teammates on Monday morning.
