Chelsea keen on red-hot 22-year-old, believe they’re leading race

Here in the Transfer Tavern Chelsea fans are already getting excited about next season, such is their confidence that the title is already sewn up, and one man supporters are eager to see in blue is Tiemoue Bakayoko.

The Frenchman, who has been starring for Monaco in their surge to the top of Ligue 1 and the quarter-finals of the Champions League, has already been aligned with the Londoners and now reports from the Mirror elaborate on the subject.

It’s understood that the Stamford Bridge outfit remain keen on the 22-year-old and they indeed believe they’re at the front of the queue for him ahead of the summer transfer window, in which they plan to invest in Antonio Conte’s squad.

It’s believed that there are a host of top elite European clubs chasing Bakayoko, but the Mirror suggest that he has his eyes on the Premier League.

Recently called up by France in place of injured Manchester United man Paul Pogba, the Monaco ace could be the long-term partner for N’Golo Kante in Conte’s midfield.

Tiemoue Bakayoko and N’Golo Kante would be the best midfield two in the Premier League – agree?
