Three days ago, we relayed news from Italy that Chelsea are ‘ready to accelerate’ for AS Monaco’s Aurélien Tchouaméni, but face competition from Juventus.

The Blues and the Serie A side are not the only clubs to have their eyes set on the 21-year-old.

According to Tutto Juve, Milan, Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United and Liverpool ‘like’ the midfielder and have ‘moved’ for him.

The west London club identified the need to strengthen the middle of the pitch to compete with the best on the European stage.

It’s said midfield is ‘one of the areas of concern’ for the Champions League winners. This is confirmed by Thomas Tuchel’s decision to field various players in midfield this term and Saúl Ñíguez’s arrival on loan from Atlético Madrid in the summer.

The Spaniard’s contribution ‘was not as good’ and, if things don’t change, he’s expected to return to Atlético after his loan spell.

Tchouaméni is becoming the target for the Premier League side and Chelsea ‘want to beat’ the Old Lady for his signature.

Tutto Juve state the Turin club are now ‘warned’ about Chelsea’s desire to sign Tchouaméni.
