Tiemoue Bakayoko arrives in London to complete £35.1m transfer to Chelsea

Tiemoue Bakayoko arrives in London to complete £35.1m transfer to Chelsea”

Tiemoue Bakayoko is the ideal example of a "modern midfielder" and will suit Chelsea manager Antonio Conte's style down to the ground, according to former Blues star Craig Burley.

Monaco powerhouse Tiemoue Bakayoko has arrived in London for a medical ahead of his protracted move to Chelsea.

Bakayoko made 47 appearances for Monaco last season, scoring three times and claiming one assist as Monaco won Ligue 1 and reached the semi-finals of the Champions League.

Manchester United were initially interested in signing the highly-rated 22-year-old but the Blues are expected to unveil the 22-year-old imminently, with Nemanha Matic set for a move to Old Trafford. He's aggressive in the challenge, he gets around the field, he's tidy on the ball, he's got energy to burn.

"That's what your modern midfielder in the Premier League has to have or is better to have and he's got that in abundance".

Burley said: "I'll tell you what, I'd never pay that for a full-back, but I understand".

Chelsea have started selling as they prepare to splash out on Tiemoue Bakayoko and Alex Sandro but are putting buy-back clauses into the deals for their departing young stars.

"Don't forget Moses played wing-back on the other side, so they will be looking in that position as well, unless Azpilicueta is going to play there".

Despite winning the Premier League title in his inaugural season in England, Conte is refusing to rest on his laurels and has insisted on adding more dynamism to his side. Is he a better player than Alonso? "I think Bakayoko looks like he's coming into Chelsea".
