Chelsea target Tiemoue Bakayako is expected to travel to England for a medical after a breakthrough in transfer negotiations with the English champions.

Talks between both clubs stalled as they both failed to come to an agreement. Monaco were holding out for £43m while Chelsea weren’t ready to meet their demands. But there has been a big breakthrough in the last few days, according to reports, and the 22-year-old might soon be in England for medicals.

The Telegraph claim the 22-year-old is now expected to head to London for a medical, with personal terms not thought to be a stumbling point as Conte closes in on his first signing of the summer.
