Tiemoue Bakayako is the latest midfielder to join Chelsea. The French international joined the club from Monaco after a successful season where he helped the club win the Ligue One and reach the semifinals of the Champions League.
Bakayako signed a five-year contract with Chelsea for a transfer fee worth £40m.
Former Chelsea defender William Gallas was 23 when he moved to Stamford Bridge from Olympique de Marseille in the South of France, and has revealed what 22-year-old Bakayako needs to do to succeed.
He said:”First of all he has to settle very well. It’s not easy to arrive in a new country and settle. You have to give him time to understand the game in the Premier League and to understand the system of the manager.”
The France international didn’t travel with the rest of the Chelsea team to Chelsea’s pre-season tour in Beijing China due to a knee injury.
