Time to go: Conte needs to ensure he moves this Chelsea player on this summer

Chelsea continue to have something of an up and down season this term but remain in contention in the Champions League and delivered an assured performance against West Brom last Monday.

Star performer Eden Hazard appears to be hitting his best form of the season at the moment which will be a huge boost to the Blues during the final three months of the campaign as manager Antonio Conte looks to ensure a top four finish.

Here in the Tavern though, our landlord thinks some eyes will already be on the summer at Stamford Bridge, and Conte could already be looking at which members of his squad need moving on and simply getting rid of for not being good enough.

One player who seems to fall into this mould is midfielder and summer signing Tiemoue Bakayoko, who to be frank, has struggled massively in his debut Premier League campaign.

The former Monaco man joined the Blues with a glowing reputation after starring for the French giants, but his form has simply not transposed into the English game, and his performances have been dipping if anything of late.

With Conte bound to demand more signings in the summer, Bakayoko might well be one of the players who is sacrificed, with Chelsea hoping to recoup some of the £50m+ they paid, despite his poor season in England.

Chelsea fans, what do you make of Bakayoko? Time for him to go? Let us know in the comments!
