"I'm very happy to be here at Chelsea," Badiashile told the official club website.

"I'm so excited to start playing for this club. I can’t wait to see the fans and start playing in the best league in the world."

"We're delighted to welcome Benoit to Chelsea," chairman Todd Boehly said.

"He's an excellent young player who has quickly established a strong reputation for himself and has a huge amount of experience for his young age.

"We are sure he will form an important part of our team in the years ahead."

The 21-year-old initially played for Monaco's B side, but after his promotion to the first team in 2018, he has made 106 Ligue 1 appearances and scored six goals.
