The French international made the move to the Bridge from the impressive Monaco as he looked to progress in his career. Having made 10 appearances for the side, the central midfielder been rather impressive as he steps in for the injured N’Golo Kante. However, when the former Leicester man is fit, Bakayoko finds himself being rotated in and out of the side due to the prowess and reliability of Kante.
But this is one man who we think will really thrive under Ancelotti. The Italian enjoys to play a high press style of game with the midfielders running ragged and tirelessly to win back possession, which suits the central midfielder very well as his game is based around a terrier-like approach to win back possession and cause pressure.
In fitting the Ancelotti style of play, this man would also more than likely be at the forefront of increased playing time, which would provide all sorts of positivity on his game as he is given the chance to really prosper.
