Chelsea to increase efforts to sign Sandro and Bakayoko

  Chelsea to increase efforts to sign Sandro and Bakayoko Chelsea will step up their pursuit of Juventus’ Alex Sandro and Monaco’s Tiemoué Bakayoko this week, with Antonio Conte becoming frustrated at the lack of progress in the transfer market, according to The Guardian. Conte, who is currently holidaying in Italy, is yet to commit to a contract extension with the Premier League champions after growing frustrated at the lack of transfer activity going on at the club. The 47-year-old has had a contract on the table since the end of the season, which if signed, would see him become the highest paid manager in the club’s history. Chelsea will attempt to appease their manager’s frustrations by preparing an improved bid of £55million for Sandro and over £40million for Monaco midfielder Bakayoko. The £55million bid for Sandro is expected to be tabled within the coming days and would become Chelsea’s club record bid. Sandro, who has seven caps for Brazil, has been earmarked by Conte as a potential upgrade on Marcos Alonso at left wing-back and the £55million bid could tempt Juve into selling. French international Bakayoko is set to join Chelsea in a deal worth over £40million after helping Monaco to the Ligue 1 title last season. Chelsea hope to complete both deals as soon as possible as they hope for Conte to sign the improved managerial contract this summer.

Chelsea closing in on Bakayoko deal .
Chelsea have reportedly agreed a fee with AS Monaco to sign midfield unit Tiemoue Bakayoko. A report from French newspaper L’Equipe, as cited by Metro, states that the Blues have had a £35 million offer accepted by the Ligue 1 champions. L’Equipe say that Chelsea’s board are hoping they can announce the transfer as soon as next week. Bakayoko is very much a physical player and was impressive for Monaco in their recent campaign. L’Equipe go on to say that Bakayoko is ‘enthusiastic’ about the prospect of working with Antonio Conte, which could have been a deciding factor between signing for Chelsea or Manchester United. It’s understood that Chelsea have been deep in negotiations with the French club for over a month now, but faced competition from Jose Mourinho’s side. With Bakayoko looking poised to sign for the London club, it’s reported that United will look to his current midfield partner Fabinho to bolster their options in midfield.
