January move for major Chelsea target ruled out

Aurelien Tchouameni is a player that a lot of teams are looking at, and given the number of times we’ve heard Chelsea connected with him, we’re going to assume the Blues are one of them.

Get French Football News has translations of L’Equipe’s well connected reports on what will happen with the player’s future. According to the famous French football paper, the Monaco midfielder is staying put for now, and no January move will be given the green light.

You can then expect a major bidding war this summer as top teams compete for the all rounder’s services. Chelsea will likely be in the mix, depending on how much West Ham want for Declan Rice. Manchester United, Juventus and Real Madrid are all name checked in this piece too.

After surviving our winter midfield injury crisis we’re happy to wait until then (unless he can play left back, of course…)
