AS Monaco midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko is in London for a medical as Antonio Conte closes-in on a £36.7million deal.
According to reports from The Sun, the French international’s signing is due to be completed within the next few days, with his unveiling as Antonio Conte’s first signing this summer said to be close.
Bakayoko was an impressive component in Monaco’s run to the Champions League semi-finals last season and their historic Ligue 1 title.
Although Conte won the Premier League title in his inaugural season in England, he is refusing to leave the squad as it currently is and insisted on make his side more dynamic.
The 22-year-old frenchman is set to boss Antonio Conte’s options as he looks to challenge for both the Premier League and the Champions League in 2017/18.
Bakayoko’s arrival at Stamford Bridge is set to form a new-look midfield partnership with N’Golo Kante.
The move will pave the way from Nemanja Matic to depart the Blues and be reunited with Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford. The move is likely to cost the Red Devils around the same fee Chelsea will pay for Bakayoko.
