Aurélien Tchouaméni has caught the eye of top European clubs after exploding for AS Monaco under Niko Kovač this season.

Chelsea and Juventus have been regularly linked, and reports continue to push forward these two clubs as the main contenders to sign the 21-year-old.

The Blues and the Serie A side are now joined by Liverpool, Real Madrid, Manchester City and Bayern Munich.

That’s according to Tutto Juve, who say the aforementioned clubs have been monitoring the midfielder for several months and plan to secure his signature next summer. They have also knocked on the Ligue 1 side’s door for the player.

The France international’s contract runs down in 2024 and Monaco would let the star leave at the end of the season, if there is an offer of €50m.

Despite several top clubs keeping an eye on Tchouaméni, it’s claimed Chelsea are ‘on pole’ to acquire his services.

Thomas Tuchel’s side are ‘ready to beat’ Juve and other competitors, and to do that they are ready to pay around €60m, which is higher than the fee requested by Monaco.
