Tiémoué Bakayoko (born 17 August 1994) is a French professional footballer who plays for Serie A club Napoli, on loan from Chelsea. He plays as a defensive midfielder, but can adapt to other positions such as a box-to-box midfielder due to his ability to break up play. He is considered to have all-round ability, as well as possessing physical power and athleticism, with France manager Didier Deschamps describing him as "a complete midfielder." After suffering a fractured leg as a young player, Bakayoko joined the academy at Rennes at the age of 13. Read more on Wikipedia
