Chelsea’s midfield was lacking depth last season, but it appears as though that will change ahead of the next campaign…
According to the Express, Chelsea are set to seal deal for Monaco midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko over then next 48 hours, with the Frenchman pencilled in for a medical later this week.
The deal has, of course, been speculated for several months now, but it looks as though Chelsea are finally beginning to make some real progress in the summer market.
It has been a tough slog for Chelsea this summer, with the club one of the few top sides in the Premier League not to invest so far. Liverpool, Man City and Man Utd have all spent big already, and so the Blues need to make sure that they are acting in a similar vein.
Bakayoko, of course, would be a fantastic start, with the Frenchman a real breakout hit last season. Monaco were arguably Europe’s surprise package last year, and the emergence of players like Bakayoko was a key reason for that.
The Chelsea fans in the pub are dreaming of a midfield duo made up of Bakayoko and N’Golo Kante.
