Chelsea target Tiemoue Bakayoko will give Antonio Conte the Champions League quality
Champions League quality has been the factor driving Antonio Conte’s approach towards Chelsea’s summer recruitment process.
Conte’s squad needs boosting in terms of numbers but the Italian manager has made it clear any new signings have to be capable of performing among Europe’s elite.With Tiemoue Bakayoko he feels there is no doubt.
Conte studied Bakayoko closely last season, making the effort to be there in person to see him in action in as many Champions League games as possible because he wanted to see him working out of possession as much as on the ball and envisage how he might fit into his team.
He was there as Monaco brushed past Tottenham in the group and again when Leonardo Jardim’s exciting young side crushed Manchester City and Borussia Dortmund on their way to the semi-finals.
