The 22-year old powerhouse has signed a five-year deal at Stamford Bridge and has been given the no. 14 jersey ahead of the new season.
Bakayoko was instrumental for AS Monaco as the club won their first French Ligue 1 title since 2000 in addition to reaching the semifinals of the UEFA Champions League.
Tiemoue Bakayoko becomes Chelsea’s third summer signing after Argentine goalkeeper Willy Caballero and German international defender Antonio Rudiger. His £40m transfer makes it Chelsea’s second most expensive purchase behind Fernando Torres’ 2011 move from Liverpool for £50m.
