Video evidence suggests Tiemoue Bakayoko is well worth Chelsea’s £40m

Posted by

Top tackling, confident control, delightful dribbling and a head for goals.

Chelsea want to Monaco midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko as a replacement for the outgoing Oscar, according to The Sun, who claim that the 22-year-old France youth international could cost the Blues £40m.

Having watched this video of Bakayoko in action, we reckon £40m would be a total bargain.

There is no doubt that Bakayoko is built to withstand the physical pressures of the Premier League, but his technique – especially his tackling – is equally as impressive as his stature.

Bakayoko is having such a good season with Monaco.

The last three matches in which he has played have ended as 5-0, 4-0 and 7-0 wins.
