Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is convinced that his top transfer target is heading to the Stamford Bridge from the Stade Louis II this summer.
The Blues are currently at the top of the Premier League table and have very little chance of missing out on the title, after an incredible run of results this season.
They will play in the Champions League next season and Conte is desperate to improve the squad to help them compete with the best next season. This has seen him linked with a number of star players recently and one such player, who Conte is confident of landing this summer is AS Monaco midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko.
The French midfielder, who is now called up for the national team to replace Manchester United’s Paul Pogba who is injured, is one of the most wanted stars in his position in Europe this summer.
The Chelsea boss is looking for a player who can partner N Golo Kante in the middle of the park and has been looking at the likes of Marco Veratti and Radja Nainggolan for a move this summer.But it is now understood that Conte is determined to land Bakayoko and has identified him as the perfect option.
At 22, he is also an option for the future and could be one of the most influential transfers in the summer if Chelsea are able to pull it off.
