Chelsea face competition for Aurelien Tchouameni

Tchouameni on Juventus radar

Chelsea are set to face stiff competition from Juventus in the pursuit of AS Monaco midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni.

The Frenchman is regarded as one of the most promising young midfielders in Ligue 1, and he has been garnering plenty of interest.

The Blues were fancied to make an offer last month, but instead opted to monitor his progress over the ongoing campaign.

Based on this, they are likely to make an approach, but Tuttosport claims that they could face stiff competition from Juventus.

The Bianconeri are planning a midfield rebuild over multiple summer windows. They have their sights on landing Tchouameni.

The youngster was valued at around €35m earlier this summer, but his price is likely to bump up with the ever-increasing interest.

The Blues have also been linked with a move for West Ham United's Declan Rice, who was previously in their academy for eight years.

The midfielder may prove expensive for them at €100m. They could prioritise a move for Tchouameni, who does not come with a premium fee.
