Former Chelsea coach Ray Wilkins has slammed Chelsea’s deal for Monaco midfielder Timoue Bakayoko.

Wilkins insists he’s disappointed Chelsea are going for the 22-year-old Monaco midfielder when Chelsea have a talent like Nathaniel Chalobah in the team.

“I was really disappointed to read they are looking at Bakayoko from Monaco,” Wilkins said on talkSPORT.

“He is 22 years of age, French and doesn’t get near the national side, but it was quoted Chelsea might be paying £32million.

“Well, in Nathaniel they have got a footballer that can play exactly the same but just needs an opportunity to get in there and play.

“You have seen already in the two games he has played up to now [at the European Championship] he looks a class act in and amongst people of his own age.

“Playing with the top quality players that they have at Chelsea, he can only improve week to week.”
