Chelsea are set to include Michy Batshuayi in a stunning deal that will see Tiemoue Bakayoko arrive at the Stamford Bridge this summer, according to reports.

The Blues are one of the clubs that have been linked with a summer move AS Monaco defender who is valued at £43million.

The 22-year-old has been an integral part of the French side’s impressive displays this season, helping them to a Ligue 1 victory with his impressive display in the midfield area.

Reports in the Telegraph claim that Antonio Conte is determined to seal a summer deal for Bakayoko and will meet with AS Monaco next week to thrash out a potential deal for the midfielder.

The report also claims that is firmly part of Conte’s transfer plans to bolster his squad next season and have been given a £200million transfer kitty to get his targets.

There are reports that Chelsea are also considering a move for Monaco midfielder Thomas Lemar but are not convinced that the Ligue 1 side will part with two of their best players.

It is understood that Chelsea want to include Michy Batshuayi in the deal that will see Bakayoko arrive at the Stamford Bridge. The Belgian striker arrived at Chelsea just last summer but has not been able to nail a starting place under Antonio Conte and could be angling for a move this summer in a bid to get first team opportunities.
