However, stats revealed by stats guru Squawka, has revealed that the 22-year-old will actually be a good signing for Chelsea, and his midfield pairing with N’Golo Kante might make the Chelsea midfield impenetrable.
According to Squawka, Tiemoué Bakayoko won 25 tackles in the Champions League this season, only Casemiro (33) won more.
