Chelsea are now, finally, on the verge of signing AS Monaco midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko, according to Goal.
Goal believe that the France international is set to undergo a medical with the Premier League champions, and he could be unveiled as a Chelsea player late next week.
Goal report that negotiations between Chelsea and Monaco have not been straightforward, and did not progress as the Blues hierarchy would have hoped. However, it is reported that both clubs have agreed a fee in the region of £35M, and the transfer is finally going to be completed.
Nemanja Matic’s future at the Stamford Bridge, as Goal report, has now come into question, with Premier League rivals Manchester United thought to be in pole position to sign the Serb.
This is not the time to worry about where Matic may go next, however, we appear to be set to sign one of the most exciting young midfielders on the planet.
