According to reports from The Daily Mail, Chelsea are confident of beating rival suitors to the signing of Monaco’s highly-rated midfielder Tiemou Bakayoko.
The French outfit are enjoying a phenomenal campaign, boasting pole position in Ligue 1 whilst reaching the semi-finals of the Champions League where they were eventually eliminated by Juventus last night, and the 22-year-old has played a key role at the heart of their midfield.
The one-cap France international looks like a fine talent but he’s struggled to truly assert himself during Monaco’s last two European outings – suggesting he may not quite be ready for the demands of a Premier League title race.
A whole bunch of other clubs are interested, however, not least including Manchester City and Manchester United, so Chelsea may not get another chance to sign Bakayoko if they pass on him this summer.
With that in mind, Blues fans, would you back a summer transfer swoop for the Monaco ace? Let us know by voting below…
