It’s understood the Premier League champions are set to complete a deal of around £37million for the Bakayoko, off the back of the France midfielder’s brilliant campaign with Monaco.

Manchester United were initially interested in signing the highly-rated star but the Blues are expected to unveil the 22-year-old imminently, with Nemanha Matic set for a move to Old Trafford.

Bakayoko knows N’Golo Kante and Kurt Zouma very well from France duty and already appears to be making other friends at Chelsea, ‘liking’ Michy Batshuayi’s most recent Instagram video amid the growing speculation.
