Chelsea leading Aurelien Tchouameni transfer race with Blues in ‘best position’ to beat Man Utd and PSG to Monaco ace

CHELSEA are currently leading the transfer race to sign Monaco midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni, according to reports.

The 22-year-old joined Monaco in 2020 and has since been deemed one of the most promising stars in French football.

He has made 43 appearances across all competitions this season, scoring three goals and assisting two.

And now he is wanted by some of Europe's biggest clubs.

Manchester United, PSG and Real Madrid have all been linked with the star, but according to Spanish outlet Sport as per SportWitness, Chelsea are currently leading the race for his signature.

The Blues have reportedly been tracking the Frenchman for months and are eager to try and put a deal in place.

However, they are currently unable to negotiate any transfers due to the sanctions that have been placed on the club by the UK Government.

Any new recruits will be dependent on Chelsea's new owners and how much they are willing to spend in the upcoming transfer window.

Tchouameni is expected to cost around £50million, so it would be a huge investment for the club chiefs.

The Blues are set to lose some big names in the summer.
