Rennes youngster Tiemoue Bakayoko is reported to be a transfer target for Chelsea and Manchester United.

The defensive midfielder has impressed after breaking into the first-team earlier this year.

Now the France Under-18 international is being linked with a move to the Premier League.

The 19-year-old has come through the ranks at Rennes, and the Ligue 1 side would be keen to keep hold of their starlet.

But with United and Chelsea just a couple of the sides reportedly tracking Bakayoko, a move away from the club could be on the cards.

The youngster has already made 12 league appearances this season, including 90 minutes in the 2-0 defeat at Lorient at the weekend.
