The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are already looking towards next season with one eye…
It seems that the Blues’ brass is too, with the Daily Mail reporting that the club have already begun proceedings with regards to securing a summer transfer. Tiemoue Bakayoko is apparently the player in question, with the Daily Mail noting that Chelsea are set to hold discussions with Monaco this week, having already held conversations with the player.
The likes of Man Utd and Liverpool are also reportedly keen, but Chelsea appear set to make the first real move for the midfield dynamo.
Mightily impressive for Monaco this year, Bakayoko has been stellar both domestically and continentally for his club. A powerhouse in the heart of the midfield, the thought of Bakayoko moving to Stamford Bridge has left the fans in the Transfer Tavern dreaming of a duo between him and N’Golo Kante.
For the Blues, though, there is still the small matter of an FA Cup final to attend to, and so Conte must ensure that he is fully focused on Saturday’s clash with Arsenal. The Gunners struggled in the Premier League this year, and so Arsene Wenger will likely be desperate to earn some silverware to make up for an otherwise poor season.
So with that in mind, Chelsea will need to be at full strength, with a victory the perfect end to a mightily impressive season from the Blues.
