It’s very clear that Chelsea are going to move for a midfielder next summer, at least to us.
N’Golo Kante and Jorginho area heading past 30, Saul hasn’t really worked out, and there’s a definite need for a more defensive player to balance the attacking midfielders we have.
Aurelien Tchouameni is a player whose name comes up a lot, and in TalkChelsea’s exclusive interview with Fabrizio Romano he confirmed that the Blues “have been in touch with his agent”.
That’s no guarantee of anything of course – except that we’re considering him.
You can see him speaking in the clip embedded here:
🗣”Next summer they want to go for a defensive midfielder and Tchouameni is still one of the players they appreciate and always been in touch with his agent.”
