Chelsea are currently clear leaders in the battle for supremacy in the Premier League but it appears that all the big clubs in the League have their sight on Monaco Star Tiemoue Babayoko, per reports.
The midfielder is the star attraction of a Monaco side just two points off Ligue 1 leaders Nice and is coveted by a host of top clubs across Europe.
Monaco, however, are desperate to hold onto their 22-year-old and are determined to keep Bakayoko at the club until at least the summer.
Arsenal and Liverpool have made a ‘concrete’ approach for Monaco star Tiemoue Bakayoko who is wanted by Chelsea and Manchester United, according to reports in France.
United were recently linked with a £40 million January bid for the youngster after fears grew that Chelsea were seriously considering a summer transfer.
But it now seems as though their Premier League rivals have stolen a march on their competitors with Le 10 Sport claiming Arsenal and Liverpool have made a ‘concrete’ approach to sign Bakayoko.
Arsenal and Liverpool have both made contact with Monaco with a view to a January transfer, but have been told by the French club that there is zero chance of signing the defensive midfielder this month.
