Chelsea urged to complete signing of 22-year-old France star
Chelsea are being urged to complete the signing of Tiemoue Bakayoko from Monaco this summer by Shaka Hislop
Shaka Hislop has urged Chelsea to complete the signing of Tiemoue Bakayoko from Monaco this summer, describing the midfielder as the “perfect fit” for the Blues.
The west London side have been heavily linked with a move to bring the 22-year-old midfielder to Stamford Bridge as Antonio Conte looks to bolster his squad ahead of next season.
There have been suggestions that Bakayoko’s proposed transfer to Chelsea could open the door for Manchester United to sign Nemanja Matic from the Blues.
And former goalkeeper Hislop reckons a deal to sign Bakayoko would be a great piece of business from the west London club this summer.
Speaking to ESPN FC, Hislop said: “Antonio Conte is still trying to find the perfect partner alongside N’Golo Kante. He is indispensable in my opinion.
“Clearly Conte thinks Bakayoko is that man to give a little bit of what Matic does, a little bit of what Fabregas does. He’s the perfect fit.”
Chelsea have been linked with a host of different players this summer but have so far not officially confirmed the signing of any new names.
The Blues won the Premier League last season but Conte will be keen to add depth to his squad as he prepares his team for a return to the Champions League next season.
The west London side missed out on the chance to win a domestic double last term when they lost 2-1 to Arsenal in the FA Cup final.
