Caughtoffside relay us with the latest red hot transfer rumours, and today they’ve got a Chelsea one, citing Jeunesfooteux in France.
The Blues are coming to the end of a rollercoaster season, and are developing into a formidable force under Thomas Tuchel.
They need depth in central midfield though, and Tuchel is apparently keen on Monaco man Aurelien Tchouameni, who has excelled in Ligue 1 this season. He would be available for around £35m according to the report.
After coming through at Bordeaux he’s shining for Niko Kovac’s team, and Tuchel will have seen plenty of him in Ligue 1.
We’ve been burned before buying midfielders from Monaco – we’re still living through the Tiemoue Bakayoko nightmare – but this looks a different case. Tchouameni looks a blue chip talent, and now we’ve built the rest of our squad up so nicely, we can envisage a big money bid for this latest rising star coming good.
