The arrival of Monaco midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko at Chelsea appears to be almost done after the player himself dropped plenty of hints on social media.
The 22-year-old has been busy on Twitter today, going on a ‘liking’ spree of various posts from French fans wishing him the best in his new chapter at Chelsea.
Bakayoko has been a key target for Antonio Conte and the Blues this summer as the Italian looks to inject more energy into his central midfield options, with the 22-year-old having been close to a move for the past few weeks.
Some reports indicated Bakayoko had already been to the club’s Cobham training complex for a medical but the keyhole knee surgery he underwent earlier this year has complicated the progress of his transfer.
But reports in France now claim an announcement could be made on Friday with a fee agreed with the Ligue 1 winners and personal terms sorted.
And that was backed up by his brother Abdoulaye Bakayoko on Snapchat, who posted an image of a black background with ‘CFC’ and a blue dot emoji to signify Tiemoue’s imminent arrival.
Now comes the Twitter activity from the man himself and here are just some of the many posts liked by the Monaco man, regarding his impending move to Chelsea.
