Chelsea are reportedly ready to make bids for two key transfer targets, AS Monaco holding midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko and Juventus left-back Alex Sandro.

The Blues will offer more than £40 million for Bakayoko in a bid to convince Monaco to sell, per Dominic Fifield of the Guardian. Fifield detailed how Chelsea have been on the case for Bakayoko for a while, but he also said signing him wouldn’t necessarily ensure a shake-up of midfield: “Chelsea’s long-standing interest in Bakayoko is also likely to come to fruition, with the France international set to join for a fee in excess of £40m after a fine season at the heart of Monaco’s Ligue 1 title-winning midfield. His arrival would not necessarily see Nemanja Matic depart the club.”
