Chelsea handed massive boost in pursuit of Aurelin Tchouameni ahead of deadline day

Chelsea chase Tchouameni

As Chelsea look to revamp their ageing midfield, Monaco youngster Aurelian Tchouameni has been one earmarked as a potential successor to Ngolo Kante. The 21-year-old, who was also interesting Manchester United, has impressed in Ligue 1 across the previous 2 seasons both at Monaco and on loan at Bordeaux.

Speaking on the situation, Daily Telegraph writer Matt Law revealed that:

“If Monaco suddenly go out of the Champions League and decide they need money, then that would be an opportunity that presents itself, so I wouldn’t fully rule it out.”

Monaco out of Champions League

And so, all eyes were on Monaco last night, as they took on Shakhtar Donetsk. With the Ukrainian side holding a slender 1-0 into the second leg, the tie finished 2-2. Had it been last season, Monaco would have advanced on away goals, however they have been scrapped for this season’s competition.

As a result, the game went to extra-time, and it was the Ukrainians that prevailed, with Monaco’s Ruben Aguilar turning into his own net to send the Ligue 1 crashing out of the Champions League before the group stages.

With Monaco now short of the Champions League TV revenue and the chance to play in Europe’s top competition, could it be time for Chelsea to strike a deal for Tchouameni? The Blues are currently in talks with Saul Niguez over a loan deal for the coming season, but could do far worse than adding the French youngster to their side.

Will the latest development strengthen Chelsea’s hand enough to tempt them into a bid?
