Arsenal have been handed a massive boost as Incoming Tiemoue Bakayoko is out until September as Chelsea prepares to face the Gunners in the community shield.
Bakayoko has been heavily linked with a move to Stamford Bridge this summer with reports suggesting he is the number target for the current Premier League Champions.
The Monaco midfielder underwent knee surgery at the end of last season and could miss start of the season.
The France international is due to become the Blues’ second major signing of the summer but there are major concerns that the knee surgery he underwent at the end of last season will delay the launch of his career at Stamford Bridge.
Manager Antonio Conte expects that Bakayoko won’t be available until the second month of the season and as well as missing the club’s three friendlies in July he has all-but been ruled out of the first four games of the campaign. And also Chelsea’s community shield game on 6 of August.
