Chelsea summer signing Tiemoue Bakayako has started to show that he was worth the £40million spent on him to bring him to Chelsea from Monaco during summer.

The 23-year-old is now starting to settle in London and has put in some eye-catching performances.

He has revealed his love for Chelsea while growing up as a kid and also revealed club legend Didier Drogba was his idol.

He told the Daily Mail: “Chelsea has always been a club I liked since I was young, especially because of guys like Didier Drogba being here.

“I would make a point of watching their games and I had this club close to my heart growing up, so I’m really happy to be wearing their shirt.

“I made the choice to come to Chelsea a lot because of the coach and after speaking to him. And I spoke to the people around me and my family. It seemed like the best opportunity.”

Hopefully, he’d leave his own legacy at Stamford Bridge and be one of the celebrated heroes.
