Chelsea favourites to sign midfield star to pair with N'Golo Kante
Chelsea are favourites to sign an outbound Monaco midfielder this summer and pair him with star N’Golo Kante in which could be a formidable duo.
Antonio Conte’s side look set to sign midfield monster Tiemoue Bakayoko in what could give them one of the best midfield’s in the Premier League.
Bakayoko has impressed in the Champions League this season, particularly against Manchester City in which has created an awful lot of hype around his potential.
At only 22-years-old, there is an incredible amount of time left for the player to develop and he already looks to be one of the most talented youngsters in European football.
Several teams were said to be interested in the player but Chelsea are seen to be favourites to secure the signature of the youngster.
Monaco are said to be willing to let go of only two of their extremely talented squad in the summer, Bakayoko being one of them while Bernardo Silva could also leave the club with Manchester United chasing the winger.
That could give the indication that the club are going to keep hold of Kylian Mbappe at all costs which would rule out a move to all of the top clubs chasing him including Manchester United and Real Madrid.
