Chelsea in the battle to sign €30m-rated Frenchman

During their game against Tottenham on Sunday afternoon, Chelsea looked every inch PL champions-elect, even at this early stage of the 2021/22 season.

The German coach has ensured that his team is well drilled, defensively solid, they’ve only conceded once this season, the best in the English top-flight along with Man City and Liverpool, and frightening in the attack.

In order to progress even further, it’s believed that Thomas Tuchel will improve the squad again as soon as he is able, and that spells danger for the rest of the division. Monaco’s Aurelien Tchouameni is certainly a footballer of interest. However, the Blues will face competition for his signature from Italian giants, Juventus.

The Old Lady have started their Serie A campaign incredibly poorly and currently sit in an astonishing 18th position having not yet won a game. The club’s hierarchy need to please manager, Max Allegri, and the January capture of Aurelien would certainly go some way to doing that.

A defensive midfielder by trade, one has to question whether Thomas Tuchel sees him as a replacement for, or understudy to, the excellent N’Golo Kante.
