Tiemoue Bakayoko

Sevilla are reportedly interested in signing Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko on loan for the 2018/19 campaign.

Bakayoko arrived at Chelsea last summer with high expectations. At the time of his arrival, he was our second most expensive signing of all-time.

The Frenchman was influential in Monaco’s title-winning season before joining us, as well as being included in the Champions League team of the year.

He was completely unable to produce his best performance level in a Chelsea shirt. He was one of the disappointments of last season.

Bakayoko has a clean slate working under Maurizio Sarri. Though, it’s unclear where he fits following the arrival of Jorginho – and potentially Aleksandr Golovin.

If he does wish to depart on-loan for a season to ensure he’s playing, Sevilla have offered him the opportunity to do so in La Liga.

That’s according to Le10Sport. They note that Chelsea are prepared to let him go if he wishes, but the player himself is currently undecided.

Let’s keep an eye on this one.
