Chelsea loanee Tiemoue Bakayoko put up a stellar performance for AC Milan against Napoli in the 2-0 win for the Rossoneri in the Coppa Italia quarterfinals on Tuesday evening at the Sansiro.

The French midfielder began his  AC Milan career in a poor fashion and he was frequently criticised by the fans, the public and the manager for his lacklustre performances.

After his performance for AC Milan, last night against Napoli, AC Milan manager Gennaro Gattuso, the fans and the general public heaped praise on the former AS Monaco midfielder who has overturned his poor form this season for the club, he won more than four 'man of the match' accolades for the Serie A outfit in their Serie A games.

“I think he’s an atypical deep-lying midfielder in modern football. He can turn the moves from defensive to attacking, he takes men on and always gets past them.

“He has learned so much about transitions, as at the start he got it wrong most of the time, but today he can do diagonal runs and close off the passing channels. He is a very important player for us," Gennaro Gattuso told football Italian.

Chelsea might consider the option to bring the French star to Stamford Bridge if he continues with his present form to the end of the season.
