Tiemoue Bakayoko was announced yesterday as new Chelsea signing from AS Monaco on a £40m move.

The Frenchman told the club’s official website: “I am very happy to be here. For me this is the biggest English club, and I hope to achieve great things here. I am very proud”.

“Chelsea is a great club with a great history, and they are the champions of England. My wish was to be at the best English club there is today”.

“I am very happy and proud for me, my family and the people who have been following me for a very long time. Now the work starts for all of us together to progress”.

Bakayoko pointed out the importance of pre-season as Chelsea are set to travel to China and Singapore.

“I have the ambition to play as many matches as possible – he said – To progress as much as I can with a great coach like Antonio Conte, and then I have the objective of taking part in the World Cup at the end of the season”.

Chelsea striker Diego Costa is set to leave the club following the recent argument with manager Antonio Conte.

Former Blues’ winger Paul Canoville ‘it is a worrying situation because Chelsea need a striker in place’.

Canoville, interviewed by SkySports, claimed: “Everyone knows that in the Premier League you need a standout striker. You need someone who’s capable of holding the ball up and can finish”.

“Chelsea have been linked to [Dortmund’s Pierre-Emerick] Aubameyang and Morata but foreign teams are asking English clubs for a lot of money for these players and there is no certainty that they can do it in the Premier League”.

“Morata has also not been getting regular games at Real so he’s bound to be a little rusty. Chelsea need a player that is suited to the system and can build up his fitness during pre-season and can fit in right away.”

“We spoke a lot about tactics, and training, – he said – He took the time to talk to me about my game and explain I must be serious-minded and work hard”. 

“I know that the Premier League is a very difficult championship, one of the most difficult in the world. It is very physical and I know you must be in fighting form to compete in this league”.

Bakayoko added: “I think I am an intelligent player who offers physicality and can also dribble and get by people”.

“I have got a great reception and I’m very much impressed by the facilities here. Everything is much bigger than I have known, and it seems like the perfect place to play football”.

“I haven’t been to Stamford Bridge yet but I can’t wait to see this big stadium” he ended.
