Rumours linking Monaco midfielder Tiemoue Bakayako to Chelsea have been very strong, and it seems that the French champions have signed a possible replacement for the Chelsea target.
Belgian Pro Player of the Year Youri Tielemans, is on the verge of completing a move to Monaco and is set to undergo a medical with the French champions, with the deal valued at £21.5million plus bonuses.
The Anderlecht midfielder is seen as a possible replacement for Bakayako if he leaves the French champions.
Speaking to reporters, Anderlecht’s managing director Herman van Holsbeeck confirmed the imminent transfer of their 20-year-old midfielder: “Tielemans will undergo a medical at Monaco on Wednesday.”
With Chelsea among favourites to sign Bakayako, will the 22-year-old make a move soon? Only time indeed will tell.
