Juventus wary of Chelsea's interest in French midfielder
Juventus are wary of Chelsea's interest in signing Monaco midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni.
The Bianconeri are admirers of the defensive midfielder, and they are considering a mid-season approach.
According to Tuttosport, the Serie A giants are desperate to get their hands on Tchouameni after keeping tabs on him.
The Blues are also interested in the Frenchman, but the Bianconeri are hopeful that they don't enter the bidding battle.
Monaco want at least £45 million for their prized asset. The Bianconeri are unlikely to afford the sum up front.
They are widely expected to propose a temporary deal with an obligation to buy at the end of the current campaign.
On the contrary, the Blues are in a better financial position, but it remains unclear whether they will enter the race.
They were linked with the midfielder during the summer, but ended up signing Saul Niguez on loan from Atletico.
The Blues can sign him permanently next summer. A move for Tchouameni seems unlikely unless Saul's deal is terminated early.
