New Chelsea signing Tiemoue Bakayoko believes he has joined the "biggest club" in England.

The France worldwide officially joined the Blues in a deal worth £40m on Saturday, making him the West London club's second-highest signing behind Fernando Torres. "Signing was the natural thing for me because it is a club I loved very much in my childhood", Bakayoko said.

New Chelsea signing Antonio Rudiger says the Stamford Bridge side are "a different level" than former club Roma, and has cited Antonio Conte as the biggest reason for his switch this summer.

Everybody has known for a long while now that Tiemoue Bakayoko was going to be a Chelsea player, but it is only today that the move has been confirmed.

"As a Ligue 1 champion, I am even more determined to win as many championships as I can with my dream team Chelsea".

'To play alongside him would be something very good for me and it can help me progress'.

As per The Sun, Conte was expected to put pen-to-paper on a contract extension in wake of Chelsea's Premier League triumph.

"Now the work starts".

Wantaway Chelsea striker Diego Costa has further forced the issue of his impending departure from Stamford Bridge after he was pictured partying in an Atletico Madrid top. This season he managed 12 assists, helping the Blues become champions again and bolstering his reputation as one of English football's most impactful players despite starting just 13 matches in the league under Conte.

"I know the Premier League is a very hard championship - one of the most hard in the world".
