Towards the end of Napoli’s game against Benevento, Tiemoué Bakayoko, who is currently there on loan from Chelsea, had to hobble off with an apparent injury.

There has been a bit of worry in the local Italian press about it, since he’s already becoming an important player for Gennaro Gattuso, but the news is better than first feared.

That’s according to Radio Marte, as their show Marte Sport Live, relayed by Area Napoli, are reporting the Chelsea loanee is expected to be available for the upcoming fixture against Real Sociedad on Thursday.

‘More serious problems have been averted’ when it comes to the France international, and he only appeared to suffer a big bruise and a superficial cut.

That will be good news for Chelsea, who will want Bakayoko to play as much as possible in Naples this season, as Frank Lampard has made it clear he has no plans for the defensive midfielder at Stamford Bridge going forward.

The more he features, the higher his price goes and the more chance they have of selling him for a decent price next summer.
