One player who spent all of last season on loan was our French midfielder, Tiemoue Bakayoko.

The 24-year-old sampled life in Serie A with AC Milan.

However, according to: L’Equipe, Bakayoko wants to return to Chelsea to prove his worth.

Now I’m expecting that one sentence to provoke a response with Bakayoko being the kind of player that splits opinion.

Some will recall the excellent game he had, at Wembley back in 2017, when his pace and power terrorised Tottenham whilst others will recall the game at Vicarage Road where his display was so inept the travelling support were relieved when he was red-carded in the first half.

But what are your views on Bakayoko?

Do you believe he can return to Chelsea and play an influential role or does the thought fill you with dread?

Please feel free to drop your views into the comment facility beneath this article, we’d certainly be interested to read your views.

  • He’s young and it was a big step to go to Chelsea and the English league from France. It’s never really fair to judge a foreign player after their first season in England (Drogba anyone?) and although he certainly did mostly disappoint, there were glimpses of a fine player in there too, if we could develop that, his power and drive are ideally suited and he could yet become a star (good foil for the likes of Kante and Jorginho, imagine facing Bakayoko and Ruben). He needs a Manager who will cultivate that and bring out the best in him. I’d give him another go and although I quite like Kovacic, it makes more sense to give the player we already paid £35/40m for than paying the same for another one.

  • Thanks Analooish! He may not, but I think he’s worth another shot for sure and if he even gets close to Yaya’s level, we will have a fine player on our hands!

  • I too feel he can be a Yaya Toure and have said so in the past …. Kante-Baka-RlC, wow what a mid-field !

  • Baka is a LION! No matter what the haters got on their minds!

    He went to one of the top European side and stamped his authority in the side, to strike a solid partnership with Kessi at AC MILAN….

    He can’t and wouldn’t be mentioned in the same breath as Yaya Toure, but he can create his own niche! Playin’ in a two alongside Kante, or a three with Kante & RLC…or in a four or five man midfield!

    I know he’s better than a loan player, that offered just two assists & no goals a whole season!! He will show what he’s made of!!

  • In my opinion better we sent him back again and we buy Mateo because we need such kind of player in our team work play with confidence and can understand the match.

    • I think he’s better than kovacic, kovacic was dropped for couple of matches by ending of season by sarri

  • Bakayoko plays his best only in 433 formation, if any coach try to use him other formation like 4231/352 then Bakayoko is a big zero… only 433 he is a hero
