Chelsea are con­tin­u­ing to lead the chase for Monaco’s highly-rated 22-year-old Tiemoue Bakayoko.

The star­let is set to leave the French league lead­ers this sum­mer and is also be­ing tracked by Manch­ester United, Manch­ester City, Bay­ern Mu­nich and Ju­ven­tus.

Conte hailed the im­pact of Fabre­gas fol­low­ing the Spa­niard’s dis­play as a sub­sti­tute against Ever­ton last

Sun­day.

The cul­tured mid­fielder came on and de­liv­ered a won­der­ful as­sist for

Wil­lian to wrap up a 3-0 vic­tory at Good­i­son Park.

Conte said: “I think Cesc is a player in this part of the sea­son show­ing to be de­ci­sive in ev­ery mo­ment. If he starts the game (or if ) he came on dur­ing the game.”
