Chelsea are on the verge of signing AS Monaco midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko, according to RMCSport.
RMCSport report that the Premier League champions have agreed a fee in the region of £35M with AS Monaco for the purchase of Bakayoko. The French international is said to be expected in London early next week to undergo a medical and officially become Chelsea’s first signing of the summer.
As per RMCSport, Bakayoko is set to sign a five-year contract with Chelsea, which means he will be tied down with the Blues until he is 27-years-old. He certainly has the potential to stay even beyond that, and etch his name into the Chelsea hall of fame.
Signing Bakayoko would be a great start to what is likely to be an eventful summer. At 22, he’s only going to get better, and under Antonio Conte’s stewardship, and playing alongside N’Golo Kante – he couldn’t have a better platform to showcase his talent.
