Chelsea is reportedly interested in signing Aurelien Tchouameni from French giants, AS Monaco. The youngster had made a huge impact for the Ligue 1 club working under ex-Bayern Munich coach, Niko Kovac.
It had been a disappointing performance so far by the midfielders in the team which ended in a 2-1 defeat to Aston Villa. However, to prepare for the next season the Blues are ready to cash in some more money to sign such an amazing talent.
Tchouameni might cost around £34 million and the contract expires three years later. As a result, many current players might be out on loan or leaving permanently from the London club.
Tchouameni heaps praise from former Chelsea midfield maestro Cesc Fabregas
Aurelien Tchouameni joined the Monegasques from Bordeaux in 2020. Under their new coach Kovac, he’s played an instrumental role in their 3rd place finish in the French Ligue 1. He had made 39 appearances scoring two goals so far for the French club.
Ex-Blues midfielder Cesc Fabregas has been vital in midfield and has enjoyed playing alongside Tchouameni. Speaking about the 21-year-old midfielder, he said
“He’s got the power to get into the box. He needs to improve his final pass a little bit, but he’s so young, and he’s determined to learn.”
Fabregas said that the French youngster is a versatile player having the ability to play as a No.6, No.8, or even in No.10 position. Roman Abramovich-owned Chelsea is building their squad for the future. It seems Tchouameni would be a perfect signing considering his talent. He’s even won the Best Young Player award of Ligue 1 this season!
But, it may pave way for Billy Gilmour, Ross Barkley, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, and others to depart from the club. The Pensioners finished at 4th place in the Premier League despite an away loss. However, now the focus shifts towards the Champions League final between Chelsea and Manchester City occurring on May 29.
