Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko will reportedly join Fiorentina on loan this summer, after spending the just-completed season on loan at Napoli.

Fiorentina have reportedly set their sights on signing Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko, who spent the recently-completed season on loan at Napoli.

The 26-year-old played 44 times for Napoli in this campaign, and managed two goals and as many assists from his defensive role in the middle of the park.

Bakayoko arrived at Stamford Bridge from Monaco in 2017 for a transfer fee in the region of £40m but has had to embark on loan moves to AC Milan, a return to Monaco and his most recent loan to Napoli after his debut season in a Chelsea shirt.

According to journalist Fabrizio Romano's Twitter page, Fiorentina have emerged as a potential destination for Bakayoko next season, but his wages may complicate a deal between the Italian club and the Blues.

The Frenchman is well experienced in Serie A having made 63 appearances across his two spells with AC Milan and Napoli, which Fiorentina will be hoping can help them improve on their 13th-placed finish in the league this season.

In total, Bakayoko has only made 43 appearances for the Blues, which all came in his debut season during the 2017-18 campaign.

Sunday's key events

· The men's golf reaches its conclusion, with plenty of players still in medal contention. Home favourite Hideki Matsuyama is one shot off Xander Schauffele's lead, while Great Britain's Paul Casey is another shot further back and Tommy Fleetwood is also in the mix (11.30pm-8am)

· Great Britain have already made history in the BMX events in Tokyo, something Charlotte Worthington and Declan Brooks will be looking to add to in the women's (2.10am) and men's (3.10am) freestyle finals

· The final day of swimming action begins with the men's 50m freestyle final. Ben Proud could add to a medal-laden Games in the pool for Team GB so far, although he is up against USA's Caeleb Dressel, who is going for his fourth gold in Tokyo (2.30am)
· From sprint to endurance, Great Britain's second medal hope of the day comes through Daniel Jervis in the men's 1500m freestyle final (2.44am)
· Team GB will again be among the heavy favourites for gold in the last swimming event of the Games - the men's 4x100m medley relay final - having won the mixed event in a world record time on Saturday (3.36am)

· Already guaranteed at least a bronze, Pat McCormack takes part in the men's welterweight semi-final against Ireland's Aidan Walsh with a spot in the gold medal final at stake (4.03am)
· Ben Whittaker is also in the semi-finals of the men's light heavyweight and will be looking to continue Team GB's success in the ring (4.51am)

· There will be a surprise on the top of the men's tennis podium after Novak Djokovic missed out on a medal altogether. Alexander Zverev takes on Karen Khachanov in the second match on Centre Court at the Ariake Tennis Park (7am-2pm)

· Alison Young will be going for gold in the women's laser radial medal race (7.33am)

· Team GB's Max Whitlock will look to defend his 2016 Olympic title in the men's pommel horse final (10.41am)

· The men's high jump final includes GB's Tom Gale, although his chances of a medal look bleak (11.10am)
· So often the blue-riband event of the Olympics, the men's 100m final takes place as the world's fastest bid to be crowned Usain Bolt's successor. Three Brits have made it into the semi-finals (11.15am-11.32am), and the final looks wide open after an underwhelming display by favourite Trayvon Bromell on Saturday (1.50pm)

· Great Britain face India in the men's quarter-final (1pm)
