Celebrity News: It seems that Chelsea is already tied to their first signings facing the next season: this is one of the young promises of Monaco and a veteran Spanish striker. The Frenchman Tiemoué Bakayoko would be chosen by the Blues to strengthen the midfield and Fernando Llorente would complement the lead.
The Monaco player is 22 years old and last season was characterized as one of the most solid contentions in Europe. Although Bakayoko is one of the most promising players of Ligue 1, the supposed signing of the midfielder is full of questions.
The matter is that, beyond the 40 million euros that Chelsea would pay for the player according to L’Equipe, Los Blues have N’Golo Kanté to cover that position. In fact, the former Leicester City was named the best player in the Premier League last season.
Even so, we know that when there is a big team can give themselves some luxuries such as having two midfielders French Selection. As reported by the aforementioned French daily, the still player of AS Monaco would sign a contract with Los Blues next week.
Bakayoko is not the only player to have been linked to Chelsea. The Spanish striker Fernando Llorente has also been handled as a possibility to strengthen the team. The signing would not be rare since the attacker was already trained by Antonio Conte when both were at Juventus.
Llorente would arrive to fill a substitute role at Stamford Bridge as Diego Costa is the undisputed starter (although they always say that he is going to leave and in the end, he stays). So the player of Swansea would have to dispute the substitute position with Michy Batshuayi unless the Belgian leaves the institution. We will see if both transfers are confirmed or only one of the two.
