Over the last month, his name has constantly been linked with a move to Chelsea.
However, Timoué Bakayoko’s proposed £40 million move to the Blues looks tantalisingly close now as the young midfielder was pictured out in London with two Chelsea stars last night, reports the Daily Mail.
As per the Daily Mail, the French midfielder joined David Luiz and Willian for dinner as the Brazilians gave Bakayoko, their potential new teammate, a taste of London life.
The Daily Mail reports that the 22-year-old dined at Jinjuu Mayfair, before being taken to nearby Noviko.
The Monaco star is due to have a medical today, and the fee for the central midfielder is expected to reach in excess of £40 million after add-ons, according to the Daily Mail.
The capture of one of football’s most exciting midfield talents is sure to appease Antonio Conte who missed out on the signature of Romelu Lukaku earlier in the week.
