The Daily Mirror is reporting that Premier League leaders Chelsea are leading the chase for Monaco hotshot Tiemoue Bakayoko.
The 22-year-old has emerged as one of Europe’s most sought-after footballers following some impressive performances in Ligue 1 and Champions League, and he is heavily linked with a summer exit.
While a host of top sides are vying for his signature, latest reports from England claim that Chelsea have emerged as favourites.
The Blues manager Antonio Conte is short of options in the middle of the park and he could pair Bakayoko with the outstanding N’Golo Kante.
The good news is that the Monaco starlet appears keen on moving to Stamford Bridge, but it remains to be seen whether the two clubs can agree on a transfer fee.
Tiemoue Bakayoko has formed an excellent midfield pairing with Fabinho this term, and he scored the crucial goal to secure Monaco progress to the CL quarter-finals.
