Born in Paris, France, Tiémoué Bakayoko is a French footballer who currently plays for Chelsea FC in the English Premier League and the French national team.

Bakayoko played youth football from the age of 5, in and around his native Paris and at the age of 13 he signed for French Ligue 1 club Rennes FC and joined their academy. He made his first team debut for Rennes a few days after his 19th birthday and within a year had signed for fellow League 1 side AS Monaco in a deal woth around £7m.

Bakayoko's early days with Monaco were not easy but over time and with the notable assistance and advice of former Chelsea star Claude Makélélé who had been appointed director of football at AS Monaco in 2016, things improved and ultimately led to him joining Antonio Conte's Chelsea three seasons later on 15th July 2017 for a fee reportedly in the region of £40m.

"Timmy" as the Chelsea fans have named him, quickly established himself as a fan favourite at Stamford Bridge. He made his first team debut in 1-2 Premier League win against Tottenham Hotspur at their temporary home of Wembley Stadium and subsequently scored his first Chelsea goal sixteen days later in the 6-0 UEFA Champions League win against the Azerbaijani side Qarabağ FK.

As a French international. Bakayoko has played representative international football at U16, U17, U18, U20, U21 and made his full international debut as a substitute in March 2017 in a 2-0 friendly defeat to Spain.
