According to the Metro, Chelsea are on the verge of signing Monaco midfielder Tiemoué Bakayoko for a fee in the region of £37m.
The 22-year-old made 47 competitive appearances for Monaco last season, which included 10 in the Champions League, as the club reached the semi-final before going out to Juventus 4-1 on aggregate.
Antonio Conte is looking to add to his already talented squad this summer and sees the French midfielder as a prime target. Bakayoko is already well acquainted with N’Golo Kante and Kurt Zouma from France international duty and already appears to be making other friends at Chelsea, ‘liking’ Michy Batshuayi’s most recent Instagram video amid the growing speculation.
