Chelsea Agree Deal With Monaco To Sign Bakayoko

Chelsea are closing in on the signing of Tiemoue Bakayoko after agreeing a €40m (£35m, N14.4b) deal with Monaco, according to reports in France.

L'Équipe claim that Chelsea's board have convinced the Ligue 1 champions with their offer and are hopeful that their first summer transfer can be officially announced next week.

The report also claims that Bakayoko is enthusiastic about the prospect of working under Antonio Conte and the midfielder is determined on joining the English Premier League champions.

Monaco, meanwhile, have quickly found a replacement for Bakayoko in Soualiho Meite.

The 23-year-old midfielder will be arriving from Belgian side Zulte Waregem for a fee in the region of €8m (£7m, over N3b).
