Undisputed holder in Monaco and among the best midfielders in Ligue 1, Aurélien Tchouaméni has been performing well since the start of the season. And logically, these are noticed by some European leaders.
Elected best hope in Ligue 1 last season, Aurélien Tchouaméni confirms that at 21, he has the shoulders and the talent to have a great career. Transferred for 18 million euros in January 2020, the former Bordeaux player has adapted perfectly to AS Monaco and European competitions. With 20 games already played this season for 2 goals scored, he even wore the captain’s armband in the Europa League opener this season (1-0 victory over Strum Graz). From the height of his 87 meter, he ensures serenity in the recovery but also in the revival in the Monegasque environment.
Its good performances with Monaco, but also with the French team since September are of interest to the big European clubs. Rumors send him in particular to England where Manchester United are watching him if Pogba leaves, or on the side of Chelsea where Thomas Tuchel, who has already faced him with PSG, wishes to associate him with Ngolo Kanté in the midfield of the European champions. Turin’s Juventus are also said to be in the race to recruit the young midfielder, just like Real Madrid, who wants to complete the transfer this winter, to calmly prepare after Modric. Regarding its price, if the site Tuttomercatoweb esteem him 50M €, it’s clear that AS Monaco leaders are not going to be choosy about their demands, especially in view of the financial situations of the clubs interested in a possible transfer which are rather comfortable. It remains to be seen whether the principality’s club will agree to separate from Tchouaméni this winter, or whether it will be necessary to wait until summer 2022 (or even after) to see the midfielder, under contract until June 2024, leave the Rock.
