Chelsea signing this talented 20-year-old French ace would give Tuchel a great long-term prospect to work with


Why Aurelien Tchouameni can be a great long-term signing for Chelsea

According to ESPN (h/t Metro), Chelsea are said to have registered their interest in Aurelien Tchouameni. The Monaco starlet has impressed with his performances this season which has put clubs like Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid on alert. Tchouameni is viewed as a summer signing for Chelsea.


Aurelien Tchouameni is a 20-year-old French midfielder who plays for AS Monaco. A youth product of Girondins Bordeaux, Tchouameni started out at SJ D’Artigues in 2006 and spent 5 years there. After that, he moved to Bordeaux’s academy and continued on his development.

In 2017, he was promoted to the Bordeaux B side but due to his rapid progress, they pushed him up to the senior side within a season. Over the one and half seasons, he made 37 appearances for the side, scoring and assisting once each.

He left for AS Monaco last season and he has established himself as a vital player in the side since then, making 22 appearances to date. Tchouameni is currently a part of the French U-20 side with 5 caps to his name.

Tchouameni is surely one for the future

Given Chelsea spent a staggering amount in the summer window, bringing in a bevvy of players, it really doesn’t look like Tuchel need more signings. The likes of Timo Werner, Kai Havertz, Hakim Ziyech and Ben Chilwell all arrived for big money. That has left new Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel with an oversized squad at this point.

Nonetheless, Chelsea have a tendency to find the best possible young talents across the world and sign them. Aurelien Tchouameni falls under the same category. The French midfielder came to the fore this season with his exploits in defensive midfield for Monaco. Despite his young age, he has shown immense ability with his contributions in the heart of midfield.

With Chelsea already having a stacked midfield with players like N’Golo Kante, Jorginho and Kovacic, Tchouameni looks pretty much like a signing for the future. Since the club would be looking to bring him in the summer, it would give the player more time to develop his skills and get regular game time. That would give Tuchel a well rounded and experienced player to work with.
