Chelsea plot to beat Premier League rivals against Aurélien Tchouameni in January transfer window
According to TeamTalk (h / t Football.London), Chelsea have prepared a plan to sign the much sought after AS Monaco midfielder Aurélien Tchouameni in January. Several Premier League clubs are also said to be interested in him for a possible transfer.
The defensive midfielder has made 20 appearances so far this season and has scored two goals In the process. He has become a regular in Ligue 1 due to his excellent performances and thus aroused the interest of other clubs.
The 21-year-old was eyeing by the Blues in the summer transfer window but chose to sign instead Saul Niguez. He is interested in a move to England, but league leaders will have to face other PL clubs who have heavily spotted him.
Liverpool and Manchester United are the two clubs that interested to his services to strengthen their squad. However, Thomas Tuchel’s side have planned to make an offer for him in January, but that decision will not take effect until the end of the season.
This would give multiple advantages to Champions League holders as Monaco would not lose the Frenchman during the season. It would also avoid paying a higher sum in the future as its market value is doomed to increase if it maintains its performance.
There are an abundance of options in midfield for Tuchel, and it would be interesting to see how things go if he is signed. Marginal players like Niguez and Ross Barkley can be seen as indispensable in making room for the Monegasque midfielder.
