Chelsea FC have signed midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko from French champions Monaco for fee reported to be £40m. The 22-year-old France international has signed a 5 years deal with the Premier League champions which will keep him at the Bridge till 2022.

He becomes Chelsea's second major summer signing after they brought in defender Antonio Rudiger from Roma. Bakayoko joined Monaco from Ligue 1 rivals Rennes in 2014 and made his France debut in a friendly defeat by Spain in March this year.

He was part of the Monaco squad that reached the Champions League semi-finals last season, going out of the competition to Juventus. Bakayoko, who will wear the number 14 shirt at Chelsea, said: 

"I am very happy to be here and to join this great team. "I have grown up watching Chelsea. Signing was the natural thing for me because it is a club I loved very much in my childhood.

"I am now looking forward to evolving under this fantastic coach [Antonio Conte] and alongside so many great team-mates."
