Chelsea’s latest signing of the summer so far is midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko from AS Monaco.

The 22-year-old, who played a leading role in Monaco’s run to the Champions League semi-finals last season has signed a five-year contract at Stamford Bridge.

The France international has reportedly cost the Blues around £40million.

Bakayoko comes with a reputation of being a ball-winner as Monaco coach Leonardo Jardim and national team coach Didier Deschamps suggests.

AC Milan sporting director Massimiliano Mirabelli says the Serie A club will not be bullied into paying huge transfer fees for players.

Milan have recruited heavily during this transfer window, making nine impressive signings as they bid to make ground on champions Juventus after finishing 28 points behind in sixth place last season.

They have also been linked with big-money moves for Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata and Bayern Munich midfielder Renato Sanches in recent days.

But Mirabelli has reiterated the Italian club will only make signings on their own terms.

“Morata? We’ve been looking at him from the beginning [of the window], he’s made himself available to us,” he told Premium Sport.

“There were complications between the Champions League final and the emergence of other teams, and the track cooled down. It may warm up again, but only on our terms.

“Sanches? We know him well from his time with Benfica, and he hasn’t found much space at Bayern.

“If we needed another midfielder, we could consider him, but only under certain conditions.”

Having qualified for the Champions League, former Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy is expecting Jurgen Klopp to strengthen the squad defensively in the upcoming season.

Murphy believes Liverpool need to invest in defenders and Dutch centre-back Virgil Van Dijk who plays for Southampton would be a brilliant signing for the club.

Van Dijk has been heavily linked to Anfield this transfer window.

Meanwhile, Murphy is also pretty excited by the arrival of Mohamad Salah from AS Roma and feels that he is a good addition to the Reds's squad.
Liverpool have signed Salah on a five-year deal for £35 million but it looks like Klopp will now be switching his focus to buying players that can add to the squad defensively.
