Aurelien Tchouameni has been mentioned in transfer rumours for some time now, and those of us with our ears to the ground are familiar with the name (and even the spelling) at this point.
But his recent debut for France, followed in quick succession in the last few weeks by 4 further caps, has really brought him into focus in the wider media, and now the whispers about him coming to the Premier League are getting stronger.
SportWitness today have a translated piece from France about the midfielder’s future, where they name Chelsea along with Liverpool and Man U as teams who are “attentive” to his situation.
Given his position, it’s very believable that Chelsea are watching him, and see him as a defensive midfield option long term.
It sounds like they’ll have a big battle on their hands to sign him, however. The bidding war could be intense come this summer.
