Chelsea plan to land Monaco duo with Oscar money

Chelsea are eyeing Monaco pair Tiemoue Bakayoko and Djibril Sidibe with the money generated from the sale of Oscar to Shanghai SIPG, according to the 'Guardian'.

Chelsea will receive around £60m from Oscar's sale to the Chinese Super League club and are planning to tempt Bakayoko and Sidibe into swapping Monte Carlo for west London.

Bakayoko, a central midfielder, could pave the way for Cesc Fabregas to leave the club should he join the Blues in January. Bakayoko has 13 caps for France's U-21 side, but is yet to play for the senior national side.

Meanwhile, Sidibe would add depth to the Chelsea defence and can operate at either right-back or left-back. The 24-year-old has six caps for France and has also been linked with a move to Arsenal in the past.
