Chelsea have today confirmed the signing of French midfielder Tiemoue Bakayako. The 22-year-old was signed for £40 million in a five-year deal.
Technical director Michael Emenalo said about the deal: “Tiemoue was outstanding as Monaco emerged as one of Europe’s best sides last season and we are delighted to welcome him to Chelsea.
“Despite his young age he already has plenty of experience as a French title winner and having competed in the latter stages of the Champions League, we believe he will add considerable quality to our squad.”
Bakayako will wear the number 14 jersey for Chelsea.
The 22-year-old was in London on Thursday and completed his medical on Friday.
