The 22-year-old will remain on the books of Chelsea until at least the end of the 2021-2022 season after putting pen to paper on a five-year contract.

Bakayoko spent his formative years with the youth teams of Paris 15ème O, CA Paris-Charenton and Montrouge FC 92 before penning a professional contract with Rennes.

Chelsea technical director Michael Emenalo said : ''Tiemoue was outstanding as Monaco emerged as one of Europe’s best sides last season and we are delighted to welcome him to Chelsea.

''Despite his young age he already has plenty of experience as a French title winner and having competed in the latter stages of the Champions League, we believe he will add considerable quality to our squad. ''

For the upcoming season, Tiemoue Bakayoko has been handed the number fourteen jersey by Chelsea.
