Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is excited to be working with Tiemoue Bakayoko.

Bakayoko says it was the chance to work with Conte that lured him to Chelsea in the summer.

And the Chelsea boss said: “Baka is a good player and a good signing for us. He’s a 23-year-old — don’t forget this.

“He’s a powerful player, and that is very important, above all in this league. But he can improve a lot with the ball. We are working on this aspect.

“We did the same with N’Golo when he arrived here.

“If you remember, he was very, very good without the ball. Now you can see a complete player — with the ball and without the ball. We want to work in the same way with Baka.”
