The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are desperately waiting for their side to announce some big money signings…
As of yet, it has remained decidedly quiet on that front, but that could be about to change.
According to the Daily Mail, Chelsea are ‘close’ to sealing a £35 million deal for Tiemoue Bakayoko – with Antonio Conte said to be a fan of the Frenchman.
This has long been speculated amongst supporters in the Transfer Tavern, though it appears as though the Blues are finally edging closer to sealing the transfer.
Bakayoko enjoyed a breakout season last year for Monaco, with the French outfit storming to the Ligue 1 title, with the midfielder playing a key role alongside other emerging stars like Kylian Mbappe.
Certainly, there is a real need for a player of his quality within the Chelsea first team – with the Frenchman delivering power, technique and energy through the heart of the midfield. N’Golo Kante was stellar last year, and together, our landlord thinks that the duo would be unstoppable.
The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are hoping that Bakayoko will become the first of many signings at Stamford Bridge this summer. Amongst supporters, there is a real desire to improve their title-winning squad this close-season, and Bakayoko would certainly serve that purpose.
