Chelsea has been in constant need to sign a defensive midfielder since 2020. As a result, Thomas Tuchel drew a list of possible midfielders he would want to see at Stamford Bridge to help him initiate his plans. Aurelien Tchouameni, Declan Rice and Julian Weigl are top of that list.
Whereas there's a long list of youngster elite graduates, Tchouameni has pushed himself to his limits to be in that list. The likes of Phil Foden, Florian Wirtz and Jamal Musiala lie in this list. The AS Monaco midfielder has done exemplary well in all midfield positions, attracting big clubs like Juventus and Real Madrid across Europe.
According to Spanish publication Marca, the Blues have initiated talks with the French giants in a bid to sign the 21 year old. Monaco demand a fee in a region suspected to be €40m for the 5 times capped France international. Kante is getting older and his injury woes have reduced him to an unreliable source therefore Tchouameni is seen as his possible replacement.
