CHELSEA have reportedly agreed a £35million deal to sign Monaco star Tiemoue Bakayoko in the summer.
Bakayoko, 22, has been heavily linked with a summer move to the Premier League after enjoying an impressive campaign with Monaco.
Express Sport understands Chelsea and Manchester United are battling to sign the France international as they both look to bolster their ranks ahead of next season.
However, Italian outlet Tuttomercatoweb claim Chelsea have won the race to sign Bakayoko after agreeing a £35m deal.
It is claimed Bakayoko will put pen to paper on a five-year contract with personal terms already agreed.
This will come as a huge boost for Chelsea after they had their initial £32m offer rejected by Monaco, but it appears as if they have now got their man.
Bakayoko has scored three goals in all competitions for the Ligue 1 outfit this season and is contracted to the club until 2019.
