Chelsea midfielder Timoue Bakayoko wants to stay with Napoli.

Bakayoko has one year remaining on his contract at Stamford Bridge with new boss Thomas Tuchel reportedly seeing no future for the midfielder in West London.

Abdoulaye Bakayoko, brother and agent of the 26-year-old, has admitted that he does not know where the Napoli loanee will be playing next season.

"It's a good moment, Tiemoue scored in his last game with Napoli and the team are back in the top four," he told CalcioNapoli24. "He is happy to play at Napoli, one of the best Serie A clubs.

"I respect [Napoli boss] Gennaro Gattuso, it was important to join him again after their experience at Milan. It's been a nice season, Tiemoue feels at ease in the city and the team.

"However, I don't know if he will remain at Napoli. If they qualify for the Champions League things could change.

"He wants to play in the Champions League, but it also depends on Napoli and Chelsea.

"Napoli don't have an option to sign him permanently, Tiemoue is happy, but he is aware his destiny depends on what Chelsea and Napoli want to do."
