"Chelsea medical on Friday" - Blues to announce third summer signing before the end of the week


Monaco midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko will complete his transfer to Chelsea before the end of the week.

The Telegraph has claimed that the Frenchman will undergo his medical on Friday so as to become Antonio Conte's third summer signing.

The Italian manager has identified the youngster as the one to take over from Nemanja Matic who is expected to join Manchester United later on this month.

The 22-year-old is currently recovering from knee surgery and will not be available before mid-September.

He would miss the first three games of the season against Burnley, Tottenham Hotspur and Everton.

The player has been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge all summer.

Recent reports have claimed that Manchester United have joined the race to sign him but it now seems he will become a Chelsea player before the end of the week.
