Chelsea plan swap offer for Monaco ace Bakayoko - want Lemar too

Chelsea are preparing a swap bid for AS Monaco star Tiemoue Bakayoko.

The Telegraph says Chelsea could include Michy Batshuayi in a swap for the powerful midfielder.

Blues boss Antonio Conte will open negotiations with the French champions next week as he looks to boost his squad ahead of next season's Champions League.

It is claimed that Bakayoko's purchase will form part of the £200m guaranteed to Conte by owner Roman Abramovich.

And the Blues have also set Bakayoko's team-mate Thomas Lemar in their sights.
