Flicking through all the media material available to us, a little something mentioning Tiemoue Bakayoko caught my eye.

Now, it’s fair to say that the midfielder, who Chelsea paid Monaco £40 million for last summer, hasn’t had the best of seasons at the club.

Despite his huge transfer fee, Bakayoko has, for most of the season failed to impress and doesn’t, on the evidence provided, look a £40 million player.

But his poor first season, at Stamford Bridge, hasn’t stopped interest being shown in the player by another club.

According to the news source, The Sun, the Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund, are keen on the 23-year-old French international.

However, before we all start looking at a deal being done, our referenced source points out that Chelsea are asking for £53 million for the player, a price that, understandably, Borussia Dortmund have baulked at.

My personal view is that, from the evidence of his first season, Bakayoko should be moved on, his talents don’t appear to be suited to the frenetic Premier League game.

Others might be tempted to suggest that the decimal point could well be in the wrong place in the fee Chelsea, reputedly want.

But what are your views?

Should Bakayoko be given another season or is it time to move the midfielder on?

  • No doubt we all expected more from Baka.. Had a few ups like in our away game to atletico madrid, but alot of lows.. For some reason Conte whom I respect alot did like him and often had him in our starting line up.. Conte sees these players everyday and we just the weekends. I think we sell him with a buy back clause.. Sure for that to happen, it will be well below what we are being told Chelsea is asking for.

  • Younger players require managers who have time for them not managers who are only driven by results.

  • Bakayoko is a nice player and a good asset for our club, he needs to be given a lot of chance to proof his worth, he’s still young. The problem Chelsea have now started since when Antonio conte forced Diego out of the team and couldn’t get a good striker to fill the vacuum he left… Antonio is a nice coach but he should also learn to make the players happy, probably he can consult,Klopp, zidane,ancelotti… How they do cope with their players.
