Chelsea completed the signing of French international midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko from Monaco, the Premier League champions announced on Saturday.

The 22-year-old helped the principality side claim the Ligue 1 title last season, and he joined Antonio Conte's Chelsea on a five-year contract for a reported fee of up to £39.7 million ($51.98m, 45.3m euros).

"I am very happy to be here and to join this great team," Bakayoko said in a statement on the Chelsea website.
