Tiemoué Bakayoko is increasingly becoming one of the talking points of the upcoming summer transfer window, with links away from Chelsea to multiple destinations in England and beyond.

We seconded a story by French outlet Le10Sport the other day claiming Newcastle United are front-runners in landing the 25-year-old Frenchman, with also interest from Watford and West Ham.

Another French newspaper, Le Parisien were reporting Paris Saint-Germain to be a potential destination with the French club ‘haven’t completely discarded’ the option of moving for the twenty-five-year-old, who ‘dreams of joining Neymar’s team’.

However, a knock on the door by the French giants is far form sights as of now and a few of Premier League clubs are willing to offer him a landing spot despite his struggles with Chelsea.


Watford and Newcastle United added themselves to the potential buyers list and as per recent claims by Le10 Sport, the English pair have made ‘first approaches’ for the defensive midfielder, as well as ‘well positioning themselves’.

Perhaps considering the avenue of the club, Bakayoko would prefer a deal to Paris, although he’d need to keep his options open considering if PSG don’t come in hard and fine.

And that’s where likes of Watford, West Ham and Newcastle come in, while they aren’t as distinguished as Paris Saint-Germain, they’d offer him regular first-team football.

After two consecutive loans away from the Stamford Bridge to Milan and Monaco, its to be seen if he stays in England.
