Chelsea £39.7m flop linked with summer move to Ligue 1 giants

      Comments Off on Chelsea £39.7m flop linked with summer move to Ligue 1 giants

Chelsea flop Tiemoue Bakayoko is a target for French sides AS Monaco, according to The Telegraph.

The Frenchman joined Chelsea only last summer from AS Monaco but has since found life in the Premier League somewhat hard.

Bakayoko has come under a lot of criticism throughout the course of his first campaign in English football and has seen his spot in the side taken by Spain international Cesc Fabregas in the latest times.

Chelsea splashed out £39.7m on the landing of Bakayoko from AS Monaco last summer, with the midfielder having enjoyed a stunning season under Leonardo Jardim. Tiemoue was a key man as Le Monegasques clinched the Ligue 1 title.

He has not enjoyed the same luck with Chelsea, after all, in what has been a testing period for both the club and the player.

It’s claimed by the Telegraph that the Blues are doubtful to sanction a deal that sees Bakayoko depart from Stamford Bridge in spite of the midfielder’s struggles this term.

After all, Monaco appear to be keen on re-signing their one-time man as Fabinho continues to be linked with a transfer away.
