Chelsea have sent scouts to watch AS Monaco trio Tiémoué Bakayoko, Benjamin Mendy and Thomas Lemar, according to sport journalist Mohamed Bouhafsi, who works for French outlet RMCSport.

It is understood Tiémoué Bakayoko has already agreed personal terms with Chelsea, despite his agent and brother has admitted that the Monaco midfielder would love a summer move to Paris Saint-Germain.

“We’ve talked about it because Tiemoue is Parisian, – Bakayoko’s brother told RMCWhen he was young, he wanted to go to PSG. He’s always dreamed of moving there”.

“When I asked him to imagine that he’d move to PSG one day, he told me ‘I’d honestly like that. If they were to offer me a deal, I don’t see why I would refuse it.”

Anyway, the Premier League leaders are said to be ready to place a huge bid to to snatch the Frencman from competitors.

Also Manchester United have been heavily linked with a move for AS Monaco defender Benjamin Mendy.

Ray Wilkins believes West Ham United should sign Chelsea star John Terry following his decision to leave Stamford Bridge at the end of the season.

The former Chelsea player believes Terry won’t accept a move to Chinese Super League or Major League Soccer and West Ham may be a possible destination.

Wilkins told Talksport radio: “No one has mentioned West Ham. They have been conceding goals left, right and centre and John being an East End boy, that might be a nice fit, but whether he’d go to another London club is another question.”

West Ham manager Slaven Bilic has praised John Terry recently as “there aren’t many leaders like him”.

West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic has refused to rule out a move of John Terry to the Olympic Stadium in summer, as the English star has announced he’ll leave Chelsea at the end of current season.

“When you are talking about leadership and characters on the pitch, you are talking about them – [Steven] Gerrard, [Frank] Lampard, [Rio] Ferdinand and Terry, – Bilic  told Sky SportsJohn Terry is Mr Chelsea. He’s done everything and he definitely has at least a couple of years left. Whether that will be at West Ham or in the US, I don’t know. We don’t think about that right now”.

“I don’t think this is the end of John Terry’s career. Every manager and club would think about him because there aren’t many leaders like him”.

Then Bilic added: “But, then again, we have experience in that position. We have good players in that position so never say never but I don’t think about that right now.”

Former Liverpool and Fulham midfielder Danny Murphy has praised Manchester United’s performance against Chelsea after José Mourinho’s side beat Antonio Conte 2-0 at home yesterday.

“The spare man for Manchester United was at the back, – Murphy told Match of the Day – It meant Costa went 2 v 1 with Bailly, Rojo and Herrera did a man-for-man on Hazard wherever he was on the pitch. It didn’t matter where he went, he followed him – that was his job”.

“Matteo Darmian pushed in, even though he was like a third centre-half, and followed Pedro everywhere. You had Pogba and Fellaini in the middle of the park, matched up with Kante and Matic”.

Chelsea were stopped on the flanks as “Young and Valencia, with their athleticism and pace, were against Chelsea’s wing-backs”.

“Then, of course, it was two players against the three instead of one, which many teams do against Chelsea in Lingard and Rashford: the front two caused them all sorts of problems”.
