Chelsea have agreed a ₤40m deal from Monaco for midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko and are favorites to sign the defensive midfielder in English Premier League.


The 22-year-old will certainly have a medical later this week ahead of his move to the Premier League champs.

The bargain had actually been somewhat delayed as Bakayoko has been recouping from small knee surgical procedure that he undertook at the end of last season.

Bakayoko helped Monaco win the French title last period for the very first time in 17 years, making 51 appearances as Leonardo Jardim’s side also got to the semi-finals of the Champions League.

His arrival at Stamford Bridge can lead the way for Nemanja Matic to leave the club.

Sky Sports News HQ understands Manchester United have determined the Serbia global as a target as they want to enhance their protective midfield choices.

However Chelsea are recognized to be hesitant to offer Matic to United after Jose Mourinho secured the finalizing of Romelu Lukaku ahead of them.
