The Monaco star has risen to the top this campaign after a string of impressive performances in Ligue 1 and in the Champions League.

Manchester United have continually been linked with a transfer, but it looks as though Chelsea have beaten the Red Devils to the punch.

Monaco have a host of young stars that look set to exit the club this summer and £35 million for Bakayoko could be a bargain considering how much Kylian Mbappe could go for.

Tuttomercatoweb claim the deal is all but done with Bakayoko ready to put pen to paper on a five-year deal.

Bakayoko has already agreed personal terms and has decided Stamford Bridge is the best place for him to continue his career.
